Appling County Courthouse Rehabilitation
The Appling County Courthouse was built in 1908 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Exterior features include a pedimented Corinthian portico and pavilions as well as an octagonal domed clock tower. Interior features include historic architectural elements and materials such as Georgia marble wainscoting through the main hallways on the first floor, heart pine flooring, and a stamped decorative metal ceiling and metal cornice. These original materials were preserved as much as possible. The courtroom features a unique stained-glass installation depicting the Georgia state seal, which was included in the original building and was preserved and reused in the updated courtroom.
The entire courthouse was re-roofed including a membrane roof on flat roof areas, a slate shingle roof on sloped roof areas, and at the very top, sits the re-worked and restored copper-clad bell/clock tower with a beautiful copper-covered dome roof.
All building systems were upgraded to fit today’s modern working environment, and the courtroom now utilizes a state-of-the-art evidence presentation system.
This project was awarded the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Award of Excellence.
