Since 1854, four courthouses have stood in the center of this thriving and beautiful square. Fires destroyed the first building soon after it was erected in 1855, a second during the Civil War, and a third in 1899. The current building was completed in 1900 and designed by James Yeaman, the same architect who designed the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Take some time and enjoy the area and its side streets filled with restaurants, shops, a coffeehouse and cafes.
