This historic Court House was built in 1880. The original Mano County Court House was built in Aurora, it was later discovered by survey, Aurora was in Nevada Territory. In 1864 the records were moved to Bridgeport and held in another building -- until the present Court House was built. Three trips by buckboard and horses were required to transfer the records. The cannon in the foreground was manufactured in Bodie in 1881 to guard the Standard Mine -- it has never been fired. Color Photo by: Lewis & Virginia Kay
