On U.S. Highway 67 is the town of Jerseyville, the county seat of scenic Jersey County.
Today the most prominent building in town is the Jersey County Courthouse located along West Pearl Street. It was designed by Henry Elliot and completed in 1893.
If you visit during the right time of year, you can see many flowers in bloom on the grounds of the courthouse.
The picture above shows a bradford pear tree in bloom (just don't get too close as the smell of the blossoms on this kind of tree are very unpleasant) while the pictures below show pictures of cherry tree blossoms that were taken across the street from the courthouse.
Located on the courthouse grounds is a memorial to the Jersey County soldiers who lost their lives in service to our country.
Pictured below are some closeup pictures of some buildings in downtown Jerseyville.
