Additional Details:
This building of native limestone, erected in 1791, is the oldest Court House now in use west of the Blue Ridge. A few rods southeast from here stood the church in which Peter Muhlnburg preached his martial sermon and made his famous call to arms in 1776. Thomas Marshall, Sr., and Thomas Marshall, Jr., father and brother of Chief Justice John Marshall were the first clerks of this County, 1772-1784
