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.
