Wyoming County Courthouse and Jail
Backstory and Context
The current jail was built near the courthouse in 1929. The contract to build the jail was given to the Early Brothers. The jail shares many similarities to the courthouse having been built of the same native sandstone and as well as displaying many of the same architectural features.
During 1930, the WPA provided aid and a Courthouse Square was landscaped and a stone wall built. The stone used for the wall also came from a nearby quarry just west of Pineville. Across the street, a three-story building was built behind the Square as a fireproof annex.
