County's first permanent courthouse, which was completed in 1891 at the cost of $7,000.
During construction of this two-story frame building, by local carpenters James Lee and H.C. Griffin, county
business was conducted in a temporary courthouse, which was provided by
Coleman, Ferguson & Co. By 1903 this first courthouse was
enlarged and almost doubled in size, with an addition being built to
the front right side and extending west. In 1909 the Board of
County Commissoner contracted the Mutual Construction Co., of
Louisville, Ky., for consctuction of a new red brick courthouse at the cost of
$34,860. On January 3, 1910 the Board of County Commissioners
officially accepted the completed courthouse, still in use today. (Photo courtesy of former County
Commissoiners Sylvia Young and David "Hap" Clark)
