Last time I was in the old court house was for a wedding reception. Seemed appropriate. It is majestic as you drive up Clairmont.

surrounded by office buildings, this is a quite niche in old Decatur. Has some charming sculptures out front. Worth a look.

Well maintained beautiful old courthouse that will transport you back into the days when trying cases meant good old fashioned entertainment and you needed to take a hand-fan.

There were some exhibits going on, nothing too substantial as far as memorable; but nice just the same. You are free to wander and no one questions you or challenges you.
