1840 - 1856The first courthouse of Christian County (originally Dane County) was built in 1840 for $2,350. It was located in the center of Taylorville's Public Square. Court was held on the lower level with County Officers sharing the upstairs floor. Since the Circuit Court came to town only twice each year, the courtroom was available at other times for use by County Commissioners or for public functions.
