The Butts County Courthouse is an historic government building designed by Bruce & Morgan and constructed in 1898 in Jackson, Butts County, Georgia, United States.

The courthouse is located on West Third Street (US 23/GA 42/GA 16) and North Mulberry Street, across from the west end of the overlap with GA 36 (South Mulberry Street). It is also located on West Second Street and North Oak Street.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 18, 1980.[1]

Its design seems to be a less elaborate version of the Monroe County Courthouse designed by Bruce & Morgan in 1896. It is High Victorian in style.[2]
