Habersham County Courthouse, 1964, Clarkesville

This Mid-Century Modern structure, now known as the “old county courthouse”, is slated for redevelopment, having been sold by the county circa 2019. It replaced a much more traditional 1898 courthouse and has been widely despised by the community since its construction. The clock tower was added in 1983 but did nothing to appease the building’s legion of detractors. A new court complex was in use by 2013.

    Enjoy your postings very much!

    However, I question this one: I’m not sure, but this looks like the courthouse that was dedicated in 1964, and since supplemented by an even newer “judicial center” built around 2011. Are you sure about this?
