Johnson County Courthouse, Buffalo Wyoming

This is the Johnson County Courthouse, in Buffalo Wyoming. It's the second oldest courthouse still operating in its original function in Wyoming, having been built in 1884, when Wyoming was still a Territory. This is one of the two State courthouses in the 4th Judicial District. The other one is located in Sheridan.

This is the courthouse that the Invaders would have been tried in, after the Johnson County War, had the county chosen to retain jurisdiction.

Like the courthouse in Gillette photographs of past judges are present in the courtroom.

The Johnson County War Memorial is located on the corner of the courthouse lot.
