1. "Our Lady of Justice" Marker
Inscription. “Our Lady of Justice” graced the Stonewall County Courthouse from its beginning in 1911, until she was removed from the top of the dome in 1954 and placed on a base where she stood until a new courthouse was erected in 1983.
     In 1987, the citizens of Stonewall County contributed funds to have “Our Lady” renovated and placed on a pedestal at the present site on the courthouse square.

     “Our Lady” has withstood many droughts, numerous storms and much other damaging weather, and has seen many of her sons leave for World War I and II and also the Korean and Vietnamese Conflicts, some of these men were never to return.
     Still, she faithfully stands with her Scales of Justice and Swords to defend the rights of her citizens and to declare Liberty and Justice for all.
