Prior to July 2014, some residences south of Hwy 24/40 in Leavenworth County had postal addresses of Bonner Springs, Kansas.
  
The building was nearly a block long and three stories high. It was built of stone. The building was between Third and Fourth streets on Walnut.

=== History Timeline ===
 +
{{KS Historical Timeline Intro|Leavenworth}}
  
From 7 to 9 o'clock last night two men were at work oiling the floor in the office of the clerk of the district court. The fire was discovered by William Wissler, the watchman, and the alarm turned in by him. It is supposed that a match dropped by one of the workmen may have started a small blaze. The fire soon spread from the clerk's office to the tower containing the clock. By the time the firemen and citizens arrived the building was full of smoke and flames and no one daired enter to carry out any of the records.
