Historic Courthouse

​​​Preservation and restoration of the iconic ​​Historic Courthouse​, listed on the  National  Register of Historic Places ​, for generations to come, is a key focus of ​Clay County Communities Revitalization Association.  

In early 2017, ownership of the Courthouse was transferred from Clay County to the Town of Hayesville.  Subsequently, CCCRA signed a long-term lease for the Courthouse building, greenspace and gazebo, ensuring stewardship of the property of decades to come.

Beginning in 2000, CCCRA launched a project to stabilize the courthouse exterior and replace the dilapidated windows. In May 2010, CCCRA 
began to fashion and fund a plan to rehabilitate the courthouse and to restore it to its rightful place as the heart of Clay County.


(Update April 2017):  2017 restoration work is underway!  The building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places , is getting a face-lift with new wood trim, roof and paint.  Scroll through the photo gallery on the left for more photos of the current work.
