Greene County Courthouse, 1848, Greensboro

Considered by many to be one of Georgia’s finest public examples of Greek Revival architecture, the present courthouse in Greensboro was built by Atharates Atkinson after a design by David Demarest. The upper floor was designed specifically to house the local Masonic Lodge, which it still does today.

    Beautiful courthouse. On the front lawn of this courthouse⁷ is a Georgia historic marker for Dr. Thomas P. Janes, who was Georgia’s first Commissioner of Agriculture and my GG Grandfather. Dr. Janes’ father was Absalom Janes, one of the founders of Mercer College at Penfield, now Mercer University in Macon.
