Roswell, New Mexico's Chaves County Courthouse is "Beaux-Arts" architecture taught in Paris for two and a half centuries starting at the Academie Royale d'Architecture, 1671. Then after the French Revolution starting 1795 at the Academie des Beau-Arts. The style is a blend of Greek and Roman architecture with Baroque, then applied to 19th century construction elements.
The Chaves County Courthouse was designed by Isaac Rapp and completed in 1911. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999, which will help protect it from being demolished for future commercial development.

Beautiful building! A type of construction that must be preserved for sure!
In this attractive picture I like the management of difficult light, soft colors and composition!

An amazing building, and well suited design to a courthouse, it's impressive and quite solemn in item appearance. I like its design very much, especially the green dome which ism so notable against the soft sand color of the stone. Impressive place. And I see in your note you mention this will now be saved from future demolition, would peel actually consiğr destroying a building like this? Wow.
Thanks as always

hello Ray, Roswell. New Mexico, isn't it where there was an incident with UFO and was a spacecraft containing extraterrestrial life? But it has also this interesting, nice building. Hopefully adding to Register will save this fine structure. Nice composition, pleasant light and colours.
