Description

The large, two story brick Kittitas County Courthouse was built in 1887 on the northwest corner of Main Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. The courthouse was located in the center of the block known as Courthouse Square. The courthouse was torn down during the 1950s to make way for a newer, modern courthouse. A group of Kittitas County officials and clerks pose in front of the courthouse. The many trees that surround Courthouse Square were planted shortly after the construction of the building. The county jail was located on the north end of the building.Early photo postcards of this view of the courthouse were popular during the first quarter of the 1900s. Postcard title of this view was Kittitas County Courthouse, Ellensburg, Wash. #D3902.
