Regarding Fayette County. The courthouse, built in 1825, is the oldest courthouse in Georgia still in use, although a new courthouse annex was erected in 1985 after an arsonist tried to burn this courthouse (thinking it would delay or cancel his trial). The courthouse was restored, and a Fayette County Administrative Complex was completed in 1992.
