A look at the Rhea County Courthouse in Dayton, TN, location of the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” Trial

My friend Catherine L. Cummins, a life science instructor at LSU Laboratory School in Baton Rouge, has shared some photos of her visit to the Rhea County Courthouse in Dayton, TN, location of the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” Trial. She was kind to let me share with my readers. Has anyone else ever visited this historic site?

  1. It would be very interesting to see the text. Fwiw, I’ve blogged on this, having read the transcript and some other materials; Inherit the Wind is extremely unfair to Bryan, andI found the actual confrontation between Darrow and Bryan a bit of a disappointment: https://paulbraterman.wordpress.com/2015/09/12/the-scopes-monkey-trial-part-1-issues-fact-and-fiction/ and https://paulbraterman.wordpress.com/2015/09/26/the-scopes-monkey-trial-part-2-evidence-confrontation-resolution-consequences/

  2. Thanks for your links, Paul!

    For the photos above, click on each to open it, and there should be a “view full size” option. You could also save them to your computer and zoom in on them to read the label text…
