Historic Hall County Courthouse

116 Spring Street
Gainesville, GA 30501


The WPA-funded Hall County Courthouse and Gainesville City Hall (both facing Roosevelt Square) constructed in 1937, illustrates the Art Deco influenced design of public buildings constructed during Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal Era.

The structure replaces an older courthouse destroyed by a tornado that hit Gainesville in April 1936. President Roosevelt dedicated the new Hall County Courthouse, Gainesville City Hall and Federal Building in 1937.

City Hall is open Monday through Friday.
