Augusta architect Lewis F. Goodrich designed this Neoclassical Revival courthouse, which was completed in 1911. He also designed the Taliaferro County Courthouse and Athens City Hall.
The courthouse is crowned with a statue of Blind Justice, ironic because of the treatment of African-Americans, Jews, and other marginalized groups, at the time the courthouse was constructed, but a hopeful symbol and rare survivor today.
Recent removal of the old magnolias on the lawn, while regrettable, affords a great view of this landmark, which is one of the nicest courthouses in Georgia, in my opinion.
