Old Russell County Courthouse

Open Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 4pm; Sunday 12:30pm - 4pm.  This former courthouse was built in 1799 by Henry Dickenson. A stone  building, the structure replaced a log courthouse that was burned  during the Revolutionary War.  A brick wing was added to the stone structure by the Robert Dickenson family between 1830 and 1850.   Used as a residence until the 1970's, the courthouse began to undergo a restoration process in 1976.  The building is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a Virginia Landmark. It is now restored and open to the public. Many antiques are displayed in the building,   as donations  to the historical society.  The collection continues to grow.  Self-guided tours are encouraged.  The Dickenson Bundy log house is on the same site and is open for local crafts sales.  A covered picnic facility also exists on site for picnics and family reunions.
