The third courthouse of Knox County was across Main Ave. to the north from 1842-1886. There twelve Union raiders who were charged with train stealing in the 1862 Great Locomotive Chase in Georgia, were tried in 1863. One was convicted. The trial was then adjourned and the prisoners were sent to Atlanta because of increasing Union raids in East Tennessee. The courthouse was used as a hospital for the wounded of both armies in the fall of 1863.
