Built in the Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, the Barbour County Courthouse in Philippi, West Virginia is the chief symbol of government in the county. It was built in 1903 to 1905 as a replacement of the original courthouse that was built in 1843.

Constructed primarily of Hummelstown brownstone, the Barbour County Courthouse has 2 ? stories with a raised basement. It was called by the Hummelstown Brownstone Company to be one f the finest example of the buildings that used such materials for its construction. It was restored in 1995, and the effort was even honored by the West Virginia Development Office, calling it the ?Best Interior Rehabilitation Project? in 1999.

Today, the Barbour County Courthouse is still used as a public building.
