Inscription. In 1796, William Lytle set aside over five acres for public buildings. In 1803 Williamsburg became the first county seat and in 1809 the first county courthouse was built here by John Charles. A jail was built in 1811 and in 1812- 13 a two room clerk’s office was added. The last court was held here in April 1823. In 1858- 59 a brick school building replaced the county buildings. It was destroyed by fire in 1922. The present building was built in 1923 and closed in 1998.
