I have to say that the Grays Harbor County Courthouse is quite a looker indeed. It looks so dignified and, dare I say, handsome. You can tell that the people who built the courthouse thought that this county would become one of the west coast's major urban centers... Grays Harbor is quite an amazing (and big) natural harbor and because of that, the settlers and their contemporaries thought that they could easily build cities that would rival and even surpass San Francisco, let alone the state's own heavyweight, Tacoma (Seattle wasn't yet dominant in the late 1880s/1890s).
