Powell County Courthouse - Stanton, Ky.


Powell County's courthouse looks like a middle school. Not that there is anything wrong with it, but it just looks very 80s. Honestly, it completely blends in and I almost didn't realize what it was before I passed it. The drive through Stanton was pleasant, as this concluded my drive back from Eastern Kentucky on this beautiful cool Kentucky day. Among the most interesting things I learned about Powell County's courthouse was its Civil War history. It was among the many Kentucky courthouses burned during the Civil War, but Powell County's courthouse had the unique honor of having been burned down TWICE during the Civil War. Man, that would be rough.
