Georgia Trust For Historic Preservation Presents Excellence in Restoration Award
The Coweta County Courthouse is an historic government building located at Courthouse Square in city of Newnan, Georgia, the seat of Coweta County. It was constructed in 1904, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It is also a contributing property to the Newnan Commercial Historic District.
A Classical Revival-style building designed by architect James W. Golucke, the Coweta County Courthosue has an Ionic tetrastyle main entrance and Ionic di-style side entrances, all with full entablatures and pediments. The building has stamped copper cornices + dome, and its walls are a dark brick laid in a Flemish bond.
This project was a historic preservation of the 30,000 square foot
courthouse, renovated by Headley Construction in 1975 and again in 1990. SPLOST funds were used to help renovate the Courthouse in 2012, including a full restoration of the beautiful copperwork adorning the dome, cornice, pediments, and railings, a complete historic restoration that included renovations to reestablish the original features of this incredible historic structure. The project was selected for an Excellence in Restoration Award by the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
The most interesting feature is the dome that rises more than 100 feet above the historic court square. The tower features clocks on all four sides and the dome is covered with copper to match the cornice, pediment, and railings. In addition to housing the Probate Court and Coweta County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Courthouse can be rented for events and filming.
