"The cornerstone from the 1940 Delta County courthouse. It was affixed to the outside of the building after its remodeling." - Terry Jeanson, June 2007
Photographer's Note:
A gentleman in the JP's office told me that after the original stone facade started to fall from the building in large chunks, the entire courthouse was encased in brick. - Terry Jeanson, June 2007

Its architect was Hoke Smith, not Hook Smith. Not a pretty building, but useable. - Skipper Steely, September 14, 2005
