Charlotte County Courthouse

Charlotte County Courthouse

This is the only Virginia courthouse designed by Thomas Jefferson that still exists. Built in 1823, it stands amidst a group of 19th- and early 20th-century buildings that also have architectural merit. Visitors are invited to explore the exhibitions pertaining to local history inside the courthouse.
