William A. Howard, an associate of Thomas Jefferson's master builder, Dabney Cosby, built the present Cumberland County courthouse (1818-1821). The unusual temple-form, Jeffersonian-Classical building has finely executed Tuscan portico on the long side instead of the end and stands only one story high. Howard also designed the diminutive brick clerk's office to the east that was completed in 1821. Today, the two buildings stand near the center of the village with a jail (ca. 1823), a 19th-century well, and a 1901 Civil War monument. Department of Historic Resources, 1998.
