Join us for a glimpse into Rockingham's history as we tour the Rockingham County Circuit Courthouse with Clerk of Court, Chaz Haywood. The courthouse, built in 1896, serves as a repository for local records spanning more than 300 years and is a useful resource for community scholars, genealogists and researchers. The Circuit Court has also recently collaborated with James Madison University to launch Exploring Rockingham's Past, an ongoing effort to digitize and publish collections from the courthouse's substantial archival materials that have long been inaccessible to the public.
Our tour will include opportunities to learn about court room process from court personnel and explore the genealogy room. Upon arrival, we will be greeted by security at the entrance and asked to leave phone and all electronic devices in a secure area to be picked up during exit.
