Built in 1852, this Greek Revival vernacular Courthouse is among the oldest in Georgia. After extensive renovations and remodels during the 19th and 20th centuries, a new courthouse was opened across the street in 2002. Thanks to Mona Lowe for the updated historical information. Also significant to the history of Knoxville is the story of Joanna Troutman, who lived across the street from the courthouse and designed the Bonnie Blue flag which was integral to the design of the Texas state flag. She presented the flag to a group of volunteers who left Knoxville to aid in the fight for Texas independence.
