Old courthouse on the square

The second courthouse for Morgan County was located on the square in the same location as the first. The original courthouse burned in 1844, and this replacement was constructed a year later. Due to the need for more space, the third and current courthouse was constructed in 1905-06. This building was used as office space and as a theater until it burned in 1916.
