Washoe County Courthouse Beehive - Reno/Sparks NV, and Surrounding Area, Part IV

This is part IV of my series of photo blogs detailing my recent trip to the Reno/Sparks area. 

These shots were all taken the afternoon of August 2 in Downtown Reno.  If you look close at the top left corner of the Courthouses front facade, you can see a large beehive. 
Washoe County Courthouse, 
This hive has supposedly been here since  the 1950's!  I can't find any definitive info on this, but I've heard it for awhile. Looks burnt out right now.  I'm not sure why. 
This is NOT my pic.  This is what the hive normally looks like.

Stafford County, Virginia Courthouse

The news here recently had a story about archaeologists finding the original 1784 Stafford County Courthouse (Story Below).  This courthouse is right down the street from our house and I figured this would be a good time to document some of the cool things there... 

This looks to be a place where you can go talk on your cell phone without anyone else hearing you.  I can't figure what  else this type of structure could be used for....

This shows the archaeological dig sites at the courthouse.

Here's a link to the story about the dig and finding the1784 courthouse.... 

This rock wall on the South side of the courthouse is constructed of remains of the old jail which sat nearby. 

Across Courthouse Road sits a complex of small buildings which appear to be one of the many motels that used to sit along old Highway 1.
