Description
In 1859, this building was erected to serve the growing populace and house the county’s administration. The first court met in the home of James Gettys’ mother, Isabella. The second courthouse was constructed around 1840 and located on the square adjacent to Thaddeus Stevens law offices. On June 26, 1863, Confederate troops occupied the new Court House during the Civil War. Five days later, the battle of Gettysburg created another role for the courthouse, as a hospital.
