Bledsoe County Courthouse - Pikeville, TN

I had been to the Bledsoe County Courthouse before. It was almost two years earlier. Since that time, the city has tried to revitalize the area with thing such as a newly paved main street, new sidewalks, and new plants and trees.

 

This is the county's 4th courthouse, and the original section (minus the large additions on both sides which was added in the early 80's) was built in 1910. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The design is similar to the Seqautchie County courthouse, a few miles down the road in Dunlap, as that courthouse was built the next year.

 

The building is two stories with a brick exterior atop a stone foundation. It has a stylized classical projecting entry portico with 4 tan colored brick columns.
