Marion County Courthouse at Night - Jasper, TN

Marion County Courthouse at Night - Jasper, TN

This courthouse was the third courthouse in Jasper. The first brick building was built in 1824. Needing more space, a second and bigger courthouse was built in 1880. It burned down in 1922 and this courthouse was finished in 1925. This building also suffered fire damage in 1984 and it was renovated while changing the look somewhat.

This two-story brick building is of Neo-Classical design. It features multiple arched windows and an arched main entrance pavilion. Also incorporated into the design are two story Doric pilasters and full entablature at the roof. The building is also located in the center of Jasper's town square, which is where highways US41 meets up with US64/US72.
