Added to the National Register Of Historic Places in 1979, the Nash County Courthouse in Nashville, North Carolina, has stood for over 100 years. It functions as a courthouse, since 1900.

A beautiful example of Colonial Revival architecture by J.C. Stout, this building is a good place to visit to learn more about Nashville’s history.

Take an afternoon or evening and drive down Washington Street in Nashville — you can’t miss it!

You can even see the shoe prints of US President Harry S. Truman at the courthouse. Stop by and check out these presidential shoe prints for yourself.

In addition to the Nash County Courthouse, Nashville is home to several other historic sites. These include the Bissette-Cooley House, the town’s Historic District, and Rose Hill — a historic plantation house.
