1. Northampton County Courthouse Marker
Inscription. Northampton County, formed in 1741, was served by other courthouses on this site prior to construction of this building in 1858. At the time Samuel Calvert oversaw the project; Henry King Burgwyn has been credited as architect. Resting atop a high base, this building is one of the few surviving examples in North Carolina of the full-blown Greek Revival temple form. This noble brick structure with Ionic portico and columns has become a symbol of Northampton County.
 
Erected by The Northampton County Historical Society and The County of Northampton.
