City Directories and History: The Aiken County Courthouse was constructed in 1881 by builder J.W. Woodward and architect, Robert N. McGrath for a cost of $12,733.
“Constructed in 1881 on a lot originally known as ‘The Courthouse Square,’ the building was of red brick. In 1934, architect Willis Irvin prepared plans for remodeling, at which time the cupola was changed to house the town clock, a weather vane was placed on the pinnacle, and the exterior was stuccoed. Original doors and brass locks are still in use in the main building which was extensively renovated in 1987 when an addition was built.” (Information – Aiken Chamber of Commerce)
