Surrounding Wilkes County
Wilkes County's first
courthouse served until the current building was completed
in 1904. The new courthouse was built with arches over doors
and windows, and an ornate clock tower. In 1958, the
courthouse's roof and tower were destroyed by a fire.
Subsequently, much of the damage was repaired -- though the
courthouse no longer had its distinctive tower and roof. In
1989, as part of an effort to restore the courthouse to its
pre-1958 appearance, a new tower (although not as tall as
the original) and roof were built. Also in 1989, a rear
addition to the courthouse was constructed.
