The newly constructed Jackson County Courthouse (with bell tower and cupola) stands at the corner of Third and Main Streets.  The First Christian Church is the white building to the upper left of the photograph.  The large building to the upper right is the Newport Free (or public) School.  The road traversing the lower part of the picture is Second Street, and the business district lies one block closer to the viewer.
