This small brick building supposedly served as the county courthouse from 1848 to 1876 (when Magnolia became the county seat), but its small size suggests that it was a county clerk’s office rather than a courthouse. The building was enlarged in 1934 when a wing was added under the sponsorship of the DAR. It was renovated somewhat in 1974. It was proposed for the National Register in 1979, but was not approved for nomination at that time.
