    It's very surprising a jump from a 3rd floor would be 100 feet--that courthouse must have awfully high ceilings.

    What town was it? I do know in Chillicothe, thinking its 3 stories and yep its high up. Plus several steps outside you have to go up. Older but if one would jump from there, I believe its concrete all around.

    240px-Jefferson_County_Courthouse_in_Steubenville.jpg Surprising indeed, unless there's a drop off at the back of the building I don't think it is a 100 feet unless the top floor is called the 3rd floor. Oddly, Wikipedia (source of the photo) says the building used to be 6 stories but the top floor collapsed in 1950 and they left it at 5 stories.

    The top floor was more like a clock tower in the center rather than a full complete floor.
