County Building

We call it the Federal building, but it says county building. The Forest Service was here for many years and now it is back to the county. One of a kind in many ways.
I love the traditional architecture displayed here.

Behind these doors is a treasure, a Peter Hurd mural.

The vestibule where the painting is has the vigas and latillas as well as beautifully carved doors.
You can tell it is true adobe due to the thickness of the walls. They are over a foot thick and I have seen them at two feet thick. Makes for good insulation!
