Chattahoochee County, Cusseta GA

It's about to be obvious who doesn't have a wife or girlfriend making up a honey-do list.......
I set out 7:30 Saturday morning to bag 13 county courthouses, ended up with 12 – thanks tom-tom for helping me delete the Calhoun county courthouse and not realizing it.
Round trip was about 360 miles and almost nine hours door to door.
It was dry all day except for the last fifty miles – they were really wet.

First up – Chattahoochee County, Cusseta GA









Location: Cusseta

Date Built: 1976

Architectural Style: Modern

Designer: Biggers, Scarbrough, Neal, Crisp & Clark

At some point after Cusseta was designated county seat, Chattahoochee County officials had the county's first courthouse erected there. A large, two-story wooden structure, the old courthouse was moved in 1974 to Westville, a composite 1850-era Georgia town consisting of restored houses and other structures in neighboring Stewart County. Here, under the sponsorship of the State Bar of Georgia, the old Chattahoochee County courthouse was restored to its original appearance. In 1975, county officials built a new one-story brick courthouse, followed by the larger county government office building adjacent to the courthouse in 1976.

I guess I could ease down to Westville and get a picture of the original courthouse.
