Pictured is the oldest court house in Kentucky in Greensburg. Green County was formed in 1792 from portions of Lincoln and Nelson counties and was named after General Nathaniel Greene, the famous hero of the southern campaigns during the Revolutionary War. Three courthouses have served Green County. In 1804, a brick building replaced an earlier structure, and while no longer operational, it stands in the Greensburg Historic District (downtown) and is the oldest court house building in Kentucky. The county seat is Greensburg, Kentucky.
