Whitley County Courthouse - Williamsburg, Ky.


Driving into Williamsburg, you see all of these towers and cupolas peeking up above the trees. I immediately started thinking about how awesome this courthouse was going to look. Unfortunately, all of these towers are a part Cumberland College, and the courthouse square was relatively boring and deserted on this Saturday morning. Even Cumberland College's football field has cupolas on the press box.
The courthouse pictured above is the fourth to sit on this site. Interestingly, the original name of Williamsburg was actually "Whitley Courthouse." Come on pioneers...you guys could do better than that.
As I believe I've noted before, the largest city in Whitley County is actually Corbin, which in fact sits in three counties and is the county seat of none of them...which is kind of insane when you think about it. What would have been so devastating about one big county with Corbin in the middle?
