Maquoketa Sentinel, November 20, 1856.


The burning of the Hardin County Court House at Eldora, on the 17th ult., involved a loss to the county of $2000. In addition to the building, there were also destroyed a good Sabbath School Library, and effects belonging to the Odd Fellows Lodge, which met in the hall. The county records were saved.
