County Court

From 2010 Blog
- Many of Virginia's counties have 300+ year histories and Northampton County on Virginia's Eastern Shore is one of the oldest. The building in the foreground is the 1731 Courthouse while the building in the background is the 18th century Clerk's Office once home to the oldest continuous county court records in the country which have been maintained since 1632. The entire courthouse green complex is one of the best preserved in Virginia and so ends today's Virginia history lesson. Canon G11, 1/640 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.
