The Courthouse has never burned down; only the papers have been burned. First, by Nathaniel Bacon; Second: Incendiary office fire; Third: during the War of Northern Aggression we sent our records to Richmond for safe keeping (except for the Minute Books and a few others dating back to 1820)and when Mr. Grant took Richmond, he burned; and Fourth: by some gentleman who owed George Washington money.
Oh well....makes life interesting, doesn't it?
