Patton Hill Courthouse, 1880s, Schley County

The community now known locally as Concord has also been known as St. Elmo, Nubbin Hill, and Patton Hill over the past two centuries. This precinct/court house dates to the 1880s, according to a wooden sign on the property.

Springvale Courthouse, Randolph County

My identification of this structure is tentative. I’m aware of a precinct at Springvale and this appears to be the only logical location. Precinct houses are often referred to as courthouses in rural Georgia. It’s possible that it originally served another purpose but I haven’t been able to locate any history. I’ll update if/when I learn more.

Precinct House, Zetto

I’m guessing as to the identity of this structure. Precinct houses are often referred to as “courthouses” in some parts of South Georgia.

This served for many years as the precinct house for the Stapleton Crossroads community (not to be confused with nearby Stapleton). It was likely a store before it was used as a precinct house.
