Lenoir County Courthouse – Kinston NC

Description

Volume II of a 1978 report entitled 100 Courthouses, A Report on North Carolina Judicial Facilities states the county sold bonds to build a new court house in 1939, but that the construction was “under the guidance of the Federal Works Administration.” According to the report, the architects, A. Mitchell Wooten and John J. Rowland, designed a “rare and important example of the sleek modern style.”
