Colusa County Courthouse
Erected in 1861, this Federal/Classic Revival Style building is the oldest remaining courthouse in
the Sacramento Valley. The "Southern" style reflects the county's heritage from the ante-bellum South
and states-rights sympathies during the Civil War. In its early years, the courthouse also served as
the county's center for cultural, social, and religious activities.
