City Daily Photo Theme Day - Municipal Building

Click on photos to enlarge

1 Main Street . Fincastle . Botetourt County

The theme this month is perfect timing to show you our courthouse. Botetourt County is celebrating it's 250th anniversary! Today was such a pretty day so we drove over to get a picture!

Every year Botetourt hands out little magazines that have a lot of useful and interesting info about the county...you can always pick them up at local businesses at the beginning of each year. This year's copy is special celebrating the county's anniversary... I recently picked my copy up at the library...below are pictures I took from the magazine telling the history of our courthouse: (click on images to make reading easier!)





The Botetourt County Confederate Memorial was installed in 1904:

  2. A beautiful courthouse and wonderfully preserved! A fitting memorial, with a cheerful background.
    So you are originally a Californian? We used to live only 1 1/2 hrs. N. of San Diego (Costa Mesa), and came there at least once a month, just to hang out. It's a city that never becomes boring. We also used to go there for July 4th, until parking became too much of a hassle. To get out after the festivities, it would take 2 hours just to get back to the freeway) Many thanks for featuring this beautiful courthouse for All Seasons, and have a lovely week:)

  12. Wow!--1770, that is so cool. I love riding through old small towns, well, big cities as well--and seeing the old courthouses and town squares, fountains, etc. That sky in your picture is so BRILLIANTLY BLUE!!--love it!

  14. Your county is much older than ours (in BC it is called a regional district). We are barely over 100 years old. - Margy
