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.
