About the Courthouse


Located on the Courthouse Green, the old courthouse sits where the first colonial courthouse was once located. It is a Virginia Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. It is an excellent example of Greek Revival architecture and the interior courtroom boasts all the original woodwork. The cupola contains the original bell from the 1750 Courthouse.
