Drinking fountain on the Halifax County Courthouse (North Carolina) in April 1938. The first Halfax county courthouse was built in 1759. In 1847, the first courthouse was replaced by a second, which itself was replaced in 1910 by a third courthouse erected on the site of the second courthouse. The 1938 photo of the drinking fountain on the county courthouse lawn photo is of the 1910 courthouse. See Crittenden, Charles Christopher () The historical records of North Carolina, 2, The North Carolina Historical Commission, pp. 235 Retrieved on 10 May 2009. A stone marker presently stands on the courthouse lawn where the photographed drinking fountain resided.
