This is the Sheridan County Courthouse which is located in the county seat, Sheridan Wyoming. While not obvious from these photographs, the courthouse has a new, and old, section, with the old section being this impressive structure built in 1905. Both sections are visible in these photographs, with the new modern styled office building on the right hand side of the photograph. The old section is one of the oldest standing courthouses in use in Wyoming, and perhaps might be the oldest existing courthouse.
This courthouse (old and new sections combined) houses the Sheridan County Circuit Court and the 4th Judicial District, as well as the county's offices.
This is the classically styled building that presently houses the Sheridan County, Wyoming, Drug Court. It was originally the Sheridan County Jail, and is on the same block as the Sheridan County Courthouse,and would appear to have been built fairly close in time to the old section of the courthouse. The Sheridan County Courthouse's dome appears in the background of the first photograph.
