Knox County Courthouse - Barbourville, Ky.

I like Barbourville. Before I had visited this place, my only knowledge of Barbourville came from a boss that I had at the Liquor Barn when I was in college. He was a native, and one of the nicest guys I've ever met. So I guess I was a little biased. The courthouse is pretty bad. Apparently at one point there was an Italianate courthouse here before this one, and I wish I could see how that one fit it with the downtown area. Regardless of the boring courthouse, the courthouse square is really interesting. It's set up much like any other courthouse square, but you can tell that there have been some public projects to spruce up the area and make it a place people want to be.
