Description:
This is one of the oldest surviving courthouses in Ohio and is the focal point of Georgetown, Ohio, the county seat. The Greek Revival building was constructed from 1849-1851 by architect Hubbard Baker, and transverse wings were added to the building in 1914. Despite a 1977 fire that almost destroyed the building, it remains intact. The courthouse is part of the Georgetown Historic District and is surrounded by early Federal style houses.
