Courthouse Under Construction

My grandfather Evans was a farmer and carpenter and one of the stories I remember as a child was about him working on the court house during its construction. I was also told he was involved with the installation and later the maintenance of the clocks in the tower. Obviously I don't have documents or witnesses to prove the accuracy of the stories, but I'm proud to think he did have a part in the court house construction.
