The Alamance County Courthouse was constructed in 1849 in the town of Graham just outside of Burlington.  It was there in early 1985 that Ronald Cotton found himself facing a guilty verdict. 

Eleven years later, he would pass that building on his way to be exonerated at the new district courthouse.
