Description:
During the 1830s a local citizen swayed voters to move the county seat of Pike County from Piketon to Waverly, and subsequently a new courthouse was constructed from 1865-1866. The eclectic two-story brick building was placed in the city's business district. A later three-story addition in 1909 significantly increased the front of the building whose main feature is a large Palladian window.
