See the history of our Courthouse below
Habersham County's first courthouse was a small wooden structure built in 1821 in the town square of Clarkesville.
In 1832, this building was moved to the side of the square (where it became a bank).
In 1832, a new two- story brick courthouse of simple design was constructed. This building served until 1898, when it was damaged by a mysterious explosion.
in 1898, the damaged building was torn down and a large two-story brick courthouse with a clock tower was constructed in its place. This courthouse was torn down in 1963.
In 1965, the fourth courthouse was built in an adjacent block. A combination bell tower / elevator was added to the front of the courthouse in 1983
