2. Steckler's Building
below the former courthouse was first a "county clerk's shanty" when Jackson's Creek became county seat in 1851. In the mid-1850s, Charles Steckler erected a two-story brick. It succumbed to the '62 fire, but was rebuilt. Upstairs from 1854 to 1862 was the Jackson's Masonic Lodge. The Oddfellows also used the hall until they bought their own building down the street.
