The Hossack Case

The Warren County Courthouse

The Warren County Courthouse was built in 1866, constructed of brick and cut stone and featuring four towers. The courtroom was on the second floor. Newspaper reports claimed that more than 1200 people competed for space in the room to observe Margaret Hossack's trial in April 1901, although many were forced to stand outside in the corridors and on the stairs. In 1938, after falling into disrepair, the courthouse was deemed structurally unsound and demolished.
