Downtown Georgetown’s Main Street, 1988

Posted on January 4, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Downtown Georgetown in Scott County, looking west down Main Street from the intersection of Hamilton Street, Jan. 4, 1988. The county courthouse is at left. It was the county’s fourth courthouse since Scott County was founded in 1792. The building is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places but is no longer used for for trials. Today it houses county government offices, and the district and circuit courts are on North Hamilton Street, just off Main Street. At the time of this photo, Georgetown’s population was 11,000. Today it is 33,000. Click here to see other images from our archives of Georgetown. Photo by Clay Owen | Staff
