I ran across this quote in a post about the history of the Marshall County Courthouse.

I remember a historian once remarking you could tell what was most important to a culture by observing what its biggest buildings were - the biggest buildings were once churches, then government buildings, of which this is an example, and finally buildings of commerce today.

The quote comes from a blog on sustainable agriculture written by a resident of rural Marshall County. If you want some interesting details and pictures from life on a farm, check out High Hopes Garden. There is some good stuff there.
