(This link includes many historic pictures of the courthouse.) The Crook County Courthouse in Prineville was completed in 1909, built with native basalt from a quarry west of town. With a basement, two main floors, an attic, and a three-story clock tower, it was one of the tallest buildings in Oregon at the time. County officials designated the Crook County Courthouse a “perpetual historical monument” in 1963. (Submitted on February 21, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
