Historic Adair County Courthouse: Now 130 years old

A Peek. The building cost $17,000 when build in 1884. There will be hourly guided tours, on the hour starting at 9amCT, Saturday, April 26, 2014, of the old Adair County Courthouse, 500 Public Square, Columbia, KY, as part of the inaugural Crafters Court - a part of the Farmers Market on the Square.

By Mike Watson

It is classical in style and pleasing to the eye. Many public buildings are drab in design, but our Historic Adair County Courthouse is not one of those. Ordered by the Court in August 1884 to replace the old and too-small building, on the same site, the present building was constructed in near record time.
