Black and white print a photograph of the Benton County Courthouse looking to the northwest from the intersection of
Fourth Street and Monroe Avenue. The view illustrates the main facade and a portion of the south elevation of the
building. (Much of the south elevation is obscured by trees.) The jail building is barely visible beneath a canopy of trees. A
board fence surrounds the courthouse block. A note typed on the recto of the print beneath the photograph reads as
follows: "Exact date of this photograph is unknown, but it was published in the Corvallis Gazette of July 27, 1897. Note
chimneys."
