Built during the turn of the century, from 1899 to the early years of the 1900s, the Doddridge County Courthouse that is of existence today was constructed as a replacement for the old courthouse that used to stand on the site. The old building burned down in 1898, so there was a big need to replace it soon. The ?new? one was made in a Victorian Romanesque style, following the design of the architect J. Charles Fulton, who also worked on the Barbour and Randolph counties? courthouses.

The Doddridge County Courthouse is a 2 ? story building. It has notable features like its steeply pitched gables and red brick exteriors.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, the Doddridge County Courthouse is one of the region?s best and finest preserved civil architecture from its era of construction.
