The main building here has served as a courthouse for over 200 years. The original wooden courthouse was built in 1762. In 1774, the Virginia House of Burgesses met here and organized a boycott of British goods. In 1781, when the British took the Virginia capital at Richmond, the government moved here. The building also served as a multi-denominational house of worship.
The present building dates to 1803. Additions and renovations were made in the 1860s and 1930s. Following the Civil War, this building was headquarters of the Union army occupying Virginia. Tours are available.
