Washington County Courthouse – Greenville Mississippi

It can easily be said that courthouses, for the most part, fail to be havens of joviality on the inside; however, their ornate exteriors compensate, drawing many, including ourselves, to stop and admire the remarkable architectural designs proudly displayed in downtown county seats all over the country.

The Washington County Courthouse in Greenville, Mississippi is no exception.

Built in 1891, and undergoing one remodel and two additions, this Richardson Romanesque architectural style structure has stood the test of time, and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2014.  The grounds were pristine, and the huge hardwoods (I think they were sweet gum trees) provided ample shade on that sultry September morning.
