1927 | Classical Revival | A. Ten Eyck Brown
The Cherokee County Courthouse is a five-story Classical Revival made of local marble. Its floor plan is U shaped with an open portico connecting the front extensions. The building's details include four sculptured open-winged eagles above the Corinthian columns, a carved cartouche honoring Cherokee County with the 1927 date of the start of the building’s construction, and carved “Union Jack” designs spaced throughout the building’s cornice. The Courthouse is located in the town square of Canton, GA.
