When the Douglas County Courthouse was built at the turn of the 20th century, how much did it cost?

There were eight bids received from construction companies and they were opened in February 1903. The winning bid was from Cuthbert and Sargent of Topeka, for $62,181. This information comes from a history of the courthouse found on the Douglas County Web site, www.douglas-county.com/aboutdc/courthouse.asp.
