History Quiz: Which is Front Door of Historic Courthouse?

A Grade Yourself Quiz: Do you know which is which? If you haven't peeked at the pictures, you might take a guess before clicking on the headline for the answer. Is it the Greensburg Street entrance or the one on Jamestown Street. And after you guess, ask "Why?" There are three reasons. Give yourself 25 points for knowing the right door and 25 points for knowing one of the reasons. Fifty points passes. If you get the wrong door - you've failed.

By Mike Watson
