The James County Courthouse is a historic building located in Ooltewah, Tennessee. It was built in 1913 as the third courthouse of the now defunct James County.[1] It continued to function in that capacity until 1919, when James County went bankrupt and was absorbed by Hamilton County.[1] In 1976, the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2] The building was privately purchased in 2000 and is used as the Mountain Oaks Wedding Chapel.[3]
