Significance
McCormick County was formed in 1916 from territory taken from Edgefield, Abbeville and Greenwood Counties. Plans were soon made to build a courthouse but the building was not completed until 1923. The architect was G. Lloyd Preacher of Augusta, who designed the building in the Neo-Classical style. The building is a good example of its period, with a large Doric portico on the main facade. The courthouse also has extensive decorative brickwork and an interior pressed metal ceiling. Since its completion the building has been continuously used as government offices for the county. Few alterations have occurred to the building and it retains its original character. (Source: National Register nomination form.)
