Follow along to watch the progress for this project.

Ca. 1893

The original location of the carriage house, center of the block of N 1st Street and Main Street, next to the location of the old Panora water tower. 

In this photo you can see the first Guthrie County Courthouse that was then used as the first Guthrie County High School before being moved across 1st Street and set next to the alley.  It would be used for City Hall for a few years and then sold off and moved to private property and used as a barn.

On the right side of the alley, you see S. D. Nichol's Law Office and the Mayor's Office. These buildings would later be replaced in 1928 by a little brick bungalow that is now owned by our curator.

This photo was taken from the bell tower on the first brick county high school, built in 1877, that was located on the SW corner of Panora's town square.
