Name This Place 8.3.2

The Tallahatchie County Courthouse in Sumner by William Sharkey Hull threw SusanAllen a little because of some date confusion (1902? 1909? 1910?).  Since she cited sources on these and included the date I had in my mind for the “right” answer (1910), I gave her the point there too.  I also copied some info from the National Register Nomination that might explain why the date on that one is muddled.

Now on to this afternoon’s challenge:

  2. A light well for the New Capitol was my guess also. The New Capitol underwent a major restoration in 1979
