Photographer's Note

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.
