    I might be wrong, but I am pretty sure that the Putnam County Courthouse did burn down at one time. A lot of courthouses have in Indiana, and all over the country, over the many years.

    Sidenote: If you want a history lesson on Putnam County, may I suggest: https://archive.org/details/weikshistoryofpu00weik/page/n3

    Caution: It is NOT a light read. But it is very insightful.

    As for all the buildings (Notre Dame Cathedral, Putnam County Courthouse, and all the rest), I am reminded of Percy Shelley's poem Ozymandias. No matter how beautiful, time and history will eventually win over the grand monuments built by man.

    And yet they still try($700 million and growing), in vain, to declare themselves mighty.
