This is the Carbon County Courthouse in Rawlins Wyoming. This Depression era courthouse was built by the Works Project Administration, like the former courthouse in Casper, Wyoming. It houses the Carbon County Court and also serves Wyoming's Second Judicial District together with the courthouse in Albany County.
This courthouse is unique for a classic Wyoming courthouse in that it sits on an entire city block in the center of town. While not visible in these photos, due to the mature trees, the courthouse is also unique in that it was built with attached substantial living quarters which served the sheriff and his family at the time of its construction. The concept was that the sheriff would need to live there, as the jail was housed in the courthouse.

This is the Lahaina Banyan Courthouse in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. The courthouse was built in 1859 to replace a courthouse that had been destroyed in a typhoon the prior year. The courthouse served the Kingdom of Hawaii until in U.S. annexation in 1898. It was renovated, while still being used as a courthouse in 1925. It is now a museum, visitors center and a community center.

This is the Washakie County Courthouse in Worland, Wyoming. The Courthouse dates from the early 1950s (1954, I think). It's a classically styled courthouse, with a single large courtroom. I've tried one case in this courthouse, some years ago.
Entrance to the adjoining jail, which is a substantial structure, mostly from the same era, itself.
A somewhat visually jarring feature of this courthouse is the small Chamber of Commerce building on the corner. That structure oddly has the appearance of a 1950s vintage drive in restaurant, and its my suspicion that it was. I wonder if it might have predated the building of the courthouse which, together with the jail, takes up the entire block.
Large American Indian monument, carved from a substantial block of Douglas fir, on courthouse grounds.
