The city agreed to sell the public square to the county for one dollar so that a courthouse could be built here.The first courthouse was burned by Confederate cavalry in 1864 because the Union Army was using it for barracks. After the war, a replacement courthouse was built on the same site. A third courthouse in a modern design was built in 1965 on a property adjoining the "old courthouse". A portion of the old courthouse still stands near the current (3rd) courthouse.Campbellsville is in Kentucky (KY).
