Douglas County Courthouse is a historic courthouse at 6754 West Broad Street in Douglasville, Georgia, United States. The courthouse was built in 1956,[2] after the 1896 courthouse burned down.[3] It was built where three prior courthouses originally stood.[3] In 1998, after the opening of the new courthouse, it was set for disposal. However, the local Tourism and History Commission was able to convince the county government to keep it. It became the Douglas County Museum of History and Art.[2] On October 24, 2002,[1] it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[1]
