Often-photographed York County Courthouse bears example of early architectural recycling

Linked in/Neat stuff: Bruce Arians profiled/Finding treasures in outhouses

The old turn-of-the-20th-century York County, Pa., Courthouse, artfully provided by the York Daily Record’s Dylan Segelbaum and Instagram. This building, of Dempwolf design, is one of York County’s most significant architectural wonders, and thus, one of its most-photographed buildings. Those six pillars also represent one of York County’s most significant recycling projects. They came from the courthouse’s predecessor, that was finished on the same spot in 1841. The pillars did not move very far. They were incorporated into the design of this building, which stands of the same spot, 60 years later. Also of interest: York County Courthouse, now Administrative Center. What do you call it?
