Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Old Clay County Courthouse is one of the top things that people come and see in Clay County, West Virginia. It was built in 1902 for Magistrate duties in the area by Frank Packard in the Beaux-Arts style architecture.

Boasting of three notable trials, including the very first case against a female defendant for grounds of murder, the Old Clay County Courthouse has its own history to tell as well. However, the new courthouse that was built just across the street from this 1900s structure now serves as the primary government building.

It is still operated by the local government as an office for magistrates, though. Its second floor is also being renovated to become a venue for indoor functions.
