  1. The Amite County Courthouse in Liberty.


  2. There is no cupola on the roof in this picture–was that added later, or removed at some point?


  3. This courthouse has a wonderful original judges’ bench — similar to the one in the Carroll County Courthouse in Carrollton.


  4. Looks like it was added, as current pictures show it with, and earlier (b&w) photos show it without.


    • That’s a good catch to notice the cupola missing. Doing a little digging, I found that the cupola appears in a late-nineteenth-century photograph, but had been removed by the time this photo was taken, possibly in the same 1930s WPA-remodeling that added the porches and the wings.


  5. The state’s oldest courthouse, built 1839-41. It replaced the original 1812 building, was built primarily with slave labor (what a surprise) and cost approximately $4,000.


  6. Was painted a particularly dismal shade of gray at one point. I hope it has been repainted recently.
