Gosper County Courthouse Visit - Day four, of the Chief Justice’s Summer Tour 2017

Thursday, August 3, 2017

Retired Judge Carlton Clark was called into service to serve as historian and tour guide at the Gosper County Courthouse for the first stop on the final day of the Chief Justice’s Summer Tour.  Clark entertained visitors with stories of courthouse stealing and early scuffles between counties vying for designation as county seat.

Joined by the county attorney, the county commission chair, and the Sheriff, Judge Wightman hosted the group on a walk-thru of offices and the courtroom.  Clerk Magistrate Dianna Wheeler and Clerk of the District Court Cynthia Evans and their staffs arranged for pastries and coffee to keep travelers from hunger on the final leg of their journey through the courthouses of Southwest Nebraska.
