I was in downtown Ionia and stopped to take a pic of the courthouse when a couple of workers were walking out. They said to me ” It sure is a beautiful building, isn’t it.” Yes it is, that is why I had to stop a take a few pics.
The historical marker in front of it declares It is the largest structure ever built of Ionia sandstone. It was compleated in 1885 and still looks to be in perfect condition. I wonder if a building constructed today could be built out of stone blocks. There are probably not many masons who do that kind of work but most likely it would be way too expensive.
