Boone, NC (Watauga County)

. This courthouse may have been built in 1968, but I have been unable to confirm this. One source says it was built in 2005-06.

. Watauga County was formed in 1849 from Ashe, Wilkes, Caldwell and Yancey counties. It was named for the Watauga River, whose name came from an Indian word meaning "beautiful water." It is in the northwestern section of the State and is bounded by the State of Tennessee [Johnson and Carter Counties] and Ashe, Wilkes, Caldwell and Avery counties. The first court was ordered to be held at the home of George Council, at which time justices of the peace were to decide upon a place for the future courts until the courthouse was erected. (1)
