The Dewey County Courthouse is one of the newest in Oklahoma. The offices are spacious, and the courtroom has fresh carpet and shiny wood trim. County Commissioner M.W. “Junior” Salisbury is excited to play tour leader.
“I’m pretty proud of our little courthouse here,” he says. “I really, really am.”
Officials figured they would need 25 years to pay it off, but it took less than five. One major reason: wind farms.
