Description: A photograph of the Sandusky County Courthouse located on 100 North Park Avenue, Fremont, OH. The Sandusky County Courthouse was designed by architect Cyrus Williams and built in 1844.
The courthouse is made of brick and stone and features Grecian style architecture using Doric sandstone columns. The 1844 courthouse was preserved and subsequently converted into the north wing of the current courthouse when expansion was needed in the 1930s. The expansion added a central and south section to the original courthouse, which are compatible with the historic structure. The white octagonal cupola was moved off of the original courthouse and placed atop the central section.

Description: This is a photograph of the 1913 Fremont flood. The view is from the corner of West State Street and North Front Street looking northwest.
The 1913 flood in Fremont was caused by three days of rainfall, between March 23 and March 26. Floodwaters of the Sandusky River rose to six feet higher than they had ever been recorded. Some 550 homes were flooded, and approximately fifty of these homes were rendered uninhabitable or were totally destroyed. Four out of five bridges in Fremont washed away. The flood also took three lives in Fremont: Captain Floro, Frank Saller, and John Homan. View on Ohio Memory.
