EAST CARROLL'S yEW COURT HOUSE.
. I i.jri- - 11...- 7
Above we give a picture of the' new court house for this parish, now in
process of construction, the corner stone of which is to be laid on Tues
day next with appropriate ceremonies under the an,>pice, of the Masonic
fraternity. On this day it is expected that a largf- portion of the resi.
dents of the parish will be present to participate in the ceremonies and
the festivities which have been provided for by the various committees
apl,,oi'ted for the purlose.
Wihile this picture shows the outer appearance of the building only,
an examination of the plans snows a convenient and comfortable arrange
ment of all the departments necessary for carrying on the business of the
The ground floor plan is 54x64 ft. On the front of the building,
facing east, is a plorch 9x2F ft. which leads into the main entrance, or
hall, 9x64 ft. On the south side of the hall is the clerk's office and re
cord room, the first 18x29 ft. the second 18x26 ft. The record room to
be fire proof, having thicker interior wall with concrete and cement floor
and atchedl iron ceiling. On the noth side of the hall is located the sheriff's
main office 18x19 ft. to which is attached a fire proof vault 6xll ft.
constructed in manner similar to the record room, and a police jury room
18xl1 ft. The main stairway leading to the second floor is in the tower
in the north-east corner of the building. This leads into a lobby 13x14 ft.
which opens directly into the court room, 35x42 ft. which has four open
ings on the east and five on the south side. On the north and west sides
of the court room are situated, in addition to the lobby, a grand jury room
13x i ft. two petit jury rooms lix I ft. and 14x14 ft. Immediately back
of the judge's stand, over the back hall entrance, i, a room 15x15 ft. to be
used as a lawyer's room.
The tower, which will contain a bell and clock, is 72 ft. high to top of I
roof and is provilel with stairway to reach the roof. The specifications
provide for a complete and hanlsoinme finishing of the interior with the
best of all material to be obtained.
Thln it will h! seen that the building, though not much larger than the
d one, but di tlein_, greatly in dcsign and convenient arrangement, will
be am ple for the ou'iness of the parish for mnany years.
The Police Jury is to be conuratulated upon its progressive spirit,
every member of whiih has the support in giving East Carroll such a
building, long iiee -,Id in place of the old one that has been dangerous and
unsafe for many years.
