    Oh the memories of this courthouse! As a young teenager i have memories of getting into trouble by going to the very top of this building where the clock is located. No one would believe the size of the works for this clock. I just turned my 90th B.D and at one time lived in Dawson. Good memories.

    Guns (rifles) were manufactured in Dawson for the Confederate Army.
