A fire in William Curlett's 1893 Fresno County Courthouse destroyed the dome and other parts of the building during the night of 07/29/1895. According to the Superior Court of CA's web site, ""Within the year, the damages were repaired and a more modest dome replaced the copper one destroyed by the fire." (See Superior Court of CA, County of Resno, "History of the Court," accessed 04/14/2017.)
