Cotton Plant

At this location in August 1902, the Woodruff County Courthouse in Cotton Plant was completed. Built by C.W. Clark and designed by noted Arkansas architect Charles L. Thompson, the courthouse was erected to serve the southern district of the county. A second courthouse of similar appearance, also designed by Thompson, was finished in December 1902 in the county seat of Augusta. The Cotton Plant Courthouse was a stately two story, red brick structure with a clock tower constructed in the Romanesque style.

In 1905, the courthouse provided classroom space to the Cotton Plant School while it was being rebuilt after a fire. Eventually, the southern district was discontinued in 1931 and courthouse operations were consolidated with Augusta. The building was used again by the Cotton Plant School and then later acquired by the local Masonic Lodge. The courthouse ultimately fell Into disrepair and was demolished by the Lodge. All that remain now are the cornerstone, located next to Richmond Lodge #94, and the original judges bench on display at the Cotton Plant Historical Museum.
