Colleton County Courthouse – Walterboro, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Colleton County Photos | Colleton County Courthouse
The Colleton County Courthouse is located on Hampton Street in downtown Walterboro. The original section of the courthouse was completed in 1822 after the county seat was moved from Jacksonboro. The building was originally designed by William Jay, and the front portico is attributed to noted architect Robert Mills.
From 1843 to 1844, the Colleton County Courthouse underwent extensive renovations, and it was enlarged in 1916. Later, in the 1930s, the WPA added an east wing, covered the west wing with a brick veneer, built an addition on the north entrance, and remodeled the interior.
The Colleton County Courthouse is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and received its historical marker in 2001. A monument to Southern soldiers and women of Colleton County is also on the courthouse grounds.
