High Plains Homestead newest cowtown addition, Sheriff's Office and Jail.
When this part of the country was first being populated, sinnin' and law breakin was not easy. This is not to say that folks on the high plains were more virtuous than others. For the most part, opportunity was the problem for those spread out on the ranches and farms of rural America. But for those that "went lookin for trouble" justice in the west was swift and frequently, unforgiving. Punishment was carried out according to community standards of conduct, whims of the judge and, occasionally, vigilante justice.
