By tradition, early Warwick County court sessions were held under a large elm tree at nearby Richneck Plantation, home of Col. Miles Cary, Jr. In 1810, Warwick's first brick courthouse was built on this Denbigh site. It also served as clerk's office and jail. In 1884, a large courthouse was erected on the same tract, the clerk retaining the old building. Both served Warwick County (later city) until merger with the city of Newport News, July 1, 1958.
