Designed by William J. J. Chase, the “Stripped Classical” design of this courthouse is often mistaken for Art Deco.

    I believe the architect’s name is actually “William J. J. Chase” from Decatur, GA

    One can see how it’s easy to mistake this buildings architectural style – as it’s nothing like the traditional Southern courthouses (which it most-probably replaced). Good shot – always.
