On Jan. 10, 1928, a crowd of 5,000 filled Courthouse Square for the dedication of a new courthouse. That courthouse's 90th anniversary will be observed during the Solomon Northup Freedom Day event this Thursday. The 1928 event (captured in the photo above) included speeches from several local and state dignitaries, a parade and a concert by the Standard Oil Refinery Band.
