Thousands of people have passed through the doors at the Erie County Courthouse. Think of how many young couples applied for marriage licenses. Or sat in a courtroom as an attorney, jurist, victim, witness or defendant. Children involved in custody battles, estranged couples filing for a divorce. Descendants filing an estate for a dearly departed parent. Perps in handcuffs escorted by a sheriff's deputy. Immigrants filing for citizenship. Members of the military filing their DD-214 separation papers in the Veteran's Affairs office for safekeeping. Genealogists researching their family tree. The man standing next to his bicycle. The list goes on and on. The County Courthouse, at 140 West 6th street, is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Erie County, PA. Find more Old Time Erie pictures at my Erie History Blog.
