Bartow - Old Courthouse

Construction on the old courthouse was completed in 1909 there is now a newer much larger courthouse across the street from the older structure and the old courthouse now houses the Polk County Historial Museum and Genealogical Library. Although the 1909 courthouse was the third building to serve as the courthouse in Polk its only the second courthouse to have been built on that particular plot of land (the one before that was built in 1883). The boiler room is located in one of the four basements (its the basement accessible by elevator only) and many years ago there was an explosion there killing one male worker staff cleaning crews and visitors have reported hearing screams of pain coming from that basement.
