The Orange County History Museum, the only local institution devoted to displaying and teaching about the county's rich natural and cultural history, is in danger of becoming extinct itself. Struggling to survive on a shoestring budget of donations, the little-known museum at the Franciscan Plaza downtown is scrambling to raise funds to pay its bills and stay open.

Orange County boasts some nice architecture, but to me, our most beautiful building is the Old County Courthouse at the edge of Santa Ana's civic center. Its Arizona red sandstone veneer and granite base, its three-arch doorway, its carved images of justice link us to times past. How appropriate that it's still a working county building, with the Orange County History Museum on its top floor open weekdays for us to enjoy.
