Colorado Courthouses

Premiered 12-29-16

The courthouses across Colorado are much more than judicial landmarks, their placement represents power and land status. In some cases, such as the Bent County Courthouse, the oldest continuously used in the state, the location of this Victorian structure solidified the county seat in Las Animas instead of nearby Boggsville. From Huerfano County’s solid stone design, to Wray’s house-like structure, discover the beauty, legacy and legends of Colorado’s Courthouses.
