Stigler, Oklahoma

16 Sep

The county seat of Haskel County. 

If you’ve been following my blog for the past week you will notice the courthouses.  You can’t miss them on the routes situated neatly downtown or on the town square with a trio of flags blowing in the breeze and neat gardens in bloom.  No matter what day of the week it is, there seems to be a vehicle in the parking lot. 

There’s a story about the granite monument depicting the Ten Commandments in front of this courthouse.   How often does one find such scriptures on the government property?  Not enough!  It got moved from the lawn in front of the courthouse in May 2010 to the ground next door about 75 yards according to news reports of the American Legion.

    Not the prettiest courthouse I have seen, but I give them points for using a different syle and color.

    It doesn’t look much like a county seat courthouse does it?
