  Union County
Created 1870 from Pontotoc & Tippah Counties
Court House:  New Albany


2004

The first courthouse was a large frame building at the west end of Cotton
Street, in New Albany.  In 1872, a new two-story brick courthouse was built
on the present courthouse block.  The courthouse was destroyed by fire on
October 28, 1881, along with all the county records accumulated since 1870.
A new courthouse was built in 1882, but was found inadequate for the needs
of the county offices so it was demolished and the cornerstone for a new
building was laid September 5, 1908.   The present courthouse, pictured
here, is known for it's beautiful copper roof with it's soaring golden
eagle, and was completed on June 2, 1909.
