Lafayette County Courthouse stands at the centre of Oxford’s Courthouse Square. Originally constructed in 1840 and rebuilt in 1873 after being burned by Union troops during the Civil War, its Italianate-Greek revival architecture has earned the building a place in the US National Register of Historic Places.
