Queen Anne’s County Courthouse
Completed in 1792, the white brick courthouse had a center section two rooms deep, flanked by matching wings one room deep. The building was renovated in 1876 and the wings were doubled in depth and a rear addition was added. Upstairs, find a coffered tin ceiling that is supported by cast iron columns from the Victorian Era renovations. During the cold war, a bomb shelter was built in the basement.
Located outside of the courthouse you will find a sculpture of the county’s namesake, Good Queen Anne. Her Royal Highness Princess Anne of England attended the statue’s 1977 dedication. This is the only known sculpture of Queen Anne outside of England.
Fun Fact- In 2017, and again in 2020, the courthouse was chosen to represent small-town American in Johnny Cash’s Ragged Old Flag video, which aired during the Super Bowls!
