Russell County Courthouse 

 

Political Opportunists kept confusion reigning: another election was held in 1868; Seale won; excavation began; records were 

removed from the former county seat at Crawford to a nearby store until rooms were sufficiently complete. Permanent funding was 

not enacted until 1871, the total cost being $9,600.00. Simeon O'Neal was the contractor.  The wing rooms, the inside stairs, and

exterior rebricking was accomplished in 1908.  In 1935 the branch at Phenix City was elected the county seat with Seale remaining 

a branch until it was closed in 1943.

 

Erected by the Historic Chattahoochee Commission and the Old Pickens County Courthouse Association
