The Middlesex County Courthouse in Urbanna, Virginia was built starting in 1745. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1976. It has also been known as Old Middlesex County Courthouse and as Middlesex County Woman's Club.
During the American Civil War, the building was used by Conferate troops and was shelled by Union gunboats, but was not much damaged. It has been used as a church. In 1948 it was "deconsecrated" and ownership was transferred to the Middlesex County Woman's Club. As of 1976 the building was used by that group as its headquarters and for community and private functions. It is located in the Urbanna Historic District.
