Fauquier Co. Courthouse, Warrenton, VA

The present structure, dating from the early 20th century, is a near-identical replica of the original 1790 building, which was gutted in 1909 when a fire destroyed about half the town.

Warrenton was named after Joseph Warren, a doctor and general in the American army during the Revolutionary War.  He was the commander who sent Paul Revere on his famous midnight ride.
