Talbot County, Talbotton GA and site of the first Georgia Supreme court session

Talbotton was the site for the first session of the Georgia Supreme Court.

Location: Talbotton

Date Built: 1892

Architectural Style: Queen Anne

Designer: Bruce & Morgan

Likely, Talbot County business and court sessions initially were conducted at private houses. Reportedly, a brick courthouse was built in Talbotton in 1831. Evidence of this building is found in James Silk Buckingham's 1839 diary, where he records seeing "a good brick court-house" in Talbotton. The building burned in early 1892, and the present courthouse was completed later that year
