After seeing a historic courthouse in Pittsfield,IL I searched the Life Magazine Archives for the photos of old courthouses in Kansas in Missouri. There were just a few.
Pettis Co. Courthouse in Sedalia, MO.
Cars crowding the parking lot in front of the courthouse in Independence, MO.
Pike County Courthouse in Bowling Green, MO.
I usually limit my old photo posts to KS and MO, but here is a link to other courthouse photos around the country.
Thanks to JJS in KCK for the idea.
