The Old Manatee County Courthouse, built in 1859-1860, is an historic building now located at 1404 Manatee Avenue, East, in Bradenton, Florida. It was Manatee County's first courthouse and is the oldest surviving Florida county courthouse (that was built originally as one) left in the state, and is now part of the Manatee Village Historical Park. On June 29, 1976, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. After it ceased being used as a courthouse, it became the Manatee Methodist Church and then the Manatee Methodist Church Parsonage.
