Giles Co. Courthouse at Dusk - Pulaski, TN

Giles Co. Courthouse at Dusk

The Giles County Courthouse in the center of the town square in Pulaski, TN was completed in 1909. It's a large 3 story brick structure measuring 60' x 150' with a large central cupola. The neoclassical design is marked by tall Corinthian Columns. On the inside, a balcony encircles the third floor while 16 caryatids (female faces) hold up the arched vault of the rotunda with a stained glass skylight. Inside the top of the cupola, a bell forged in 1858 strikes on the hours.

When this courthouse was built, they set out to be the nicest courthouse in Tennessee. It is certainly one of the best in the state.
