The Lowndes County Courthouse was completed in 1856. It replaced an earlier courthouse, built in 1832, that had been deemed unsafe. The building was expanded during 1905 remodeling, with two-story wings added to each side, an enclosed front entrance replacing the portico, and a domed cupola added to the center of the roof. The side wings and enclosed entrance were removed during the 1980s and the portico replaced with a duplicate of the original, at an approximate cost of $1 million. A new two-story annex was constructed to the rear of the 1856 building.
