County Courthouses in Alabama

Yesterday I had a hearing in Bibb County Courthouse in Centreville, Alabama.  Most of the courthouses I am in on a regular basis were built to be very utilitarian.  The Bibb County Courthouse was built in 1910, a time when courthouses were designed to be more, for a lack of another word, more majestic.  The Bibb County Courthouse has had additions and restorations since then, but the main Courtroom still has that majestic open feel to it.

In Alabama many county courthouses have been restored and modernized, but still retain their majestic look.  Samuel A. Rumore, Jr., a past President of the Alabama State Bar, researched the history of the courthouses in Alabama.  He published an article each month in the Bar Magazine about a county’s history and its courthouse.  Here is his article on Lamar County, Alabama.   I believe he compiled his research into a book.

Jimmy Emerson has photographed a number of current and past county courthouses in Alabama.  It is very interesting to see all of the different styles of courthouses.
