Civil War Plaque and Gettysburg Address in Courthouse
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
On the first floor of the Jasper County Courthouse in Newton are two plaques. The "Boys in Blue" plaque was dedicated by the DAR in 1924. It is brass, 20 inches wide and 29 inches high. The Gettysburg Address plaque was dedicated by the WRC in 1927. It is also brass, 22 inches high and 25 inches wide. The Courthouse, on the town square, was completed in 1911 and seems very well maintained. It has an impressive 3 story rotunda and the plaques fit in very well with the surroundings.
