Campbell County Courthouse - Alexandria, Ky.

At this point, I was really frustrated. Navigating Northern Kentucky is a complete disaster. Roads meander around, and there are "freeway-style" roads all over the place. After wandering around for awhile I finally found this courthouse in the middle of what I guess used to be Alexandria. It felt sort of bleak up there. It is now a history center for the county I think, but I couldn't find the new judicial center anywhere. So I got this picture of the historic courthouse and was happy.
The courthouse's historic marker told me that Campbell was the 19th county, was formed in 1794, and that originally the county seat was in Newport (which makes much better sense). But for whatever reason the county seat was moved to Alexandria in 1840.


1840 - the same year of the Kenton County breakaway? Interesting...
