The towering flagpole, front steps and three, square stone columns that stood at the entrance remain as a memorial to the historic building. The original courthouse bell is mounted nearby. A portion of original stonework at the northwest corner of the old courthouse site is intact and serves as a bench near the bell. A donation from the Frank and Rose Brady Family assisted in the preservation of the memorial site.
