This 1826 Greek Revival courthouse by Robert Mills is a fitting
example of the courthouse as symbol of democracy. It is one of more
than 11,000 courthouses photographed in a project that created the
most comprehensive survey to date of an American building type.
Commissioned by Joseph E. Seagram and Sons, Inc. to mark the bicentennial
of the United States of America, the Seagram County Court House
Archive was presented as a gift to the Library of Congress in 1980.
