1. Green County Courthouse (Wikipedia). This was the county's second permanent courthouse. After Monroe fought off a bid by nearby Monticello to claim the county seat, this courthouse was built in 1891. Architect G. Stanley Mansfield designed the Richardsonian Romanesque, red brick and limestone structure. A 120-foot clock tower rises from the southwest corner of the building; smaller towers mark the other three corners. (Submitted on September 13, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
