ATLANTApix: Lewis R. Slanton Courthouse

The Lewis R. Slanton Courthouse, also known as the Fulton County Courthouse, was completed in 1914 and has since served as the home of Fulton County government, save for a few additional buildings nearby added in subsequent years.

The architecture of the Courthouse is of the Neoclassical Revival / Beaux Arts Classicism style, rather unique in the Atlanta downtown area, but appropriate for the neighborhood.

The Lewis R. Slanton Courthouse was the first million-dollar courthouse in Georgia, costing $1,250,000 and has more square footage than the Georgia Capitol Building, located just around the corner.
