Washington County Courthouse
1894, Leslie P. Langworthy. 3495 Kingston Rd.
  • (Photograph by Matthew Aungst)

A granite building in polychromatic Richardsonian Romanesque, the courthouse is imposing but heavy-handed. Mid-twentieth-century renovations to the interior were removed in the late 1990s, when the building was thoughtfully rehabilitated by and for a local arts group.
