Pike County Courthouse - Pikeville, Ky.


Seasons Greetings to everyone. I apologize for the relative lack of posts on the Kentucky 120 project. It turns out that the practice of law is pretty hectic. Who knew?
I've spent my New Year's Eve with my wife's family in Eastern Kentucky, and decided that I would swing by the Pike County Courthouse while in the area. The old courthouse is pictured above, with the new courthouse behind me. The shot above is actually the back of the old courthouse, but I thought it was much more interesting than the front. You can see the clock tower lit up on the right. This picture was taken with my Iphone, and obviously at night, so I apologize for the quality.
The Pike County Courthouse pictured above was built in 1888-89 and renovated in 1932-33. The courthouse is most famous for being the cite of the murder trials in the Hatfield-McCoy feud.

That's the old courthouse from the 1880s and 1930s?? It looks massive (and too new) for that era.

Glad to have you back! I'm thinking about a drive next weekend as M. is off both Sat. and Sun. Interested?
