A small historical sign on a side road pointed us here. Like many southern towns it was named, and built, around the local court house. Appomattox Court House, location of the end of the US Civil War is another example.

There are newer headstones and CSA markers here since many grave sites were moved here when the area was flooded to create a hydroelectric plant.
