William Howard and Dabney Cosby, who had
worked for Thomas Jefferson, completed this
courthouse in 1827. The second courthouse to
occupy this site, it is a temple-form building
employing the Doric order and was influenced by
Jefferson's Roman Revival style. It originally
included an apsidal rear wall. The exterior
stairs were added later in the 19th century.
Lunenburg's county seat, originally located near
present-day Chase City, was moved here after
Mecklenburg County was formed in 1765. This
town was laid off as Lewiston in 1817 and later
renamed Lunenburg Court House. Two law
offices (built 1842 and 1888) remain on the
courthouse square.
