The Lancaster County Courthouse is a National Historic Landmark site in Lancaster, South Carolina. The Palladian style building, constructed in 1828, was designed by the well known architect, Robert Mills. It is the very place where the last witch trials took place in the entire United States.

Notable for being a continuously used county courthouse from its completion in the early 1800s up until today, the Lancaster County Courthouse is also best known for having superb craftsmanship. It is a mixture of English and Flemish bonds with a Venetian window accenting the judge?s seat.

The Lancaster County Courthouse was declared an NHL in 1973. It currently needs some major repairs and restoration after the 2008 fire which left it heavily damaged.
