Jackson County Courthouse - Gainesboro, TN

Jackson County Courthouse - Gainesboro, TN

The Pole at the top is a flagpole with no flag.

Gainesboro’s Business District is built on an incline, making it rare compared to most Tennessee towns.

Jackson Co. Courthouse Clock Tower

The Jackson County Court House is the center of the Historic District. Built in 1927 with an illuminated Seth Thomas clock in the tower, it is a remarkable structure. The clock must be wound every thirteen days to keep accurate time. A faithful volunteer climbs the tower and winds the clock devoutly. (At least that's what the county website says - it's off by 6 hours on this day.)

1927
