Description: This image shows the front facade of the Seneca County Courthouse. This is the county's third courthouse, and it was built between 1884 and 1886 by architect Elijah Myers. During the 1940s, renovations modernized the Beaux-Arts building including the removal of the statue of Justice on top of the clock tower, lowering the tower's height from 148 feet to 107. Paired fluted columns and a triangular pediment frame the two-story archway that encloses the south entrance. The statue seen here is of William Harvey Gibson (1821-1894), a lawyer who was born in Jefferson County and grew up in Seneca County. He helped to establish the Republican Party in Ohio and served as a colonel in the Civil War. James B. King was the sculptor. In 2012, this courthouse was torn down. View on Ohio Memory.

Description: This elevated view of the town of Fostoria, in Seneca County, Ohio, shows a general view of the houses and businesses of the town. Streets, public buildings and churches are labelled.
Bird's eye view drawings like this one were popular in late-19th century America. As the country became increasingly urbanized, many towns had pictures such as this one drawn as an expression of civic pride. Also note the plumes of smoke rising from small manufacturing plants and the three railroads running through this rural-seeming town. View on Ohio Memory.
