Overview

The courthouses of Georgia’s 159 counties hold the keys to the history of individual families and entire communities alike. From their primary role as the temples of justice for our court system to their better-known function as the official repository of public records for significant life events, these buildings anchor many of Georgia’s town squares.

In Courthouses of Georgia, internationally recognized photographer Greg Newington captures the prominence and character of these great structures. His images pay tribute to the community’s investment in preserving historic courthouses for future generations and celebrate new facilities designed to accommodate expanded county programs and services, keeping pace with the state’s tremendous growth.

Courthouses of Georgia commemorates the centennial anniversary of Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG), Georgia’s county government association. In his introduction to this lavishly illustrated book, former Georgia House of Representatives majority leader Larry Walker shares memories of county courthouses by legislators, authors, judges, and other notable state figures, and historian George Justice highlights the proud civic and architectural heritage of each structure to provide additional context. Organized by the nine travel regions of Georgia, the book offers the perfect starting point for touring any of Georgia’s counties and instills an appreciation for historic preservation.
