  • The courtyard is beautiful year round! There‚Äôs a lot of history markers and plaques to read throughout the square.
  • We were there to see the Christmas decorations - it was awesome - very magical. The whole courthouse was decorated as well as all the trees around it. You can walk around the courthouse on the brick sidewalk through the lit trees and just enjoy the evening.
