Old Court House


In 1680, Governor Andros authorized the erection of a court house of logs to cost 5000 pounds of tobacco. Near this wall was the second building used from 1740 to 1791, when the county seat was moved to Georgetown. The church rented building as a tavern from 1797 to 1833, when it was razed and the ground included in the churchyard.
