We walked around the courthouse and even took pictures under the cute gazebo in the back. I would definitely stop here and look around! Precious!

We ate lunch just across the street from the Courthouse at the Courthouse Whistle Stop Cafe. The view of the square is impressive from their window tables. The courthouse is starting to show decorations for Christmas, but the Fall pumpkins are still prominent. The courthouse...More

Recommended. This is a grand old building that piques your curiosity and draws you in for a look. That's what happened to us as we drove by recently. Magnificent old structures like this abound across America, here and there, where least expected. If you get...More
