More Than One Courthouse?

Some counties have more than one courthouse with each one having specific duties or perhaps responsibilities for a certain portion of the county. Does this apply to the county where you are researching?

It may seem unusual to have more than one courthouse in a county, but it does happen. I once assumed there were no deeds for a certain relative until I discovered that the county had two courthouses and I was looking in the records of the wrong one.

    Why did counties have two courthouses? Back in the horse & buggy days, it was for the convenience of the citizens so they wouldn’t have to travel too far to transact business in the courthouse.
