The Pickett County Courthouse was listed on the NRHP in 1995 for its significance with the governmental history of Pickett County. Located in Byrdstown's public square, the courthouse was completed in 1935 and has served as the center of county politics and government for the last 78 years. Designed by the Nashville-based architectural firm of Marr and Holman, the Pickett County Courthouse is a representative example of a Colonial Revival style building dressed with regional Crab Orchard stone.
