The Middlesex County Courthouse in Saluda, Virginia was built in 1852. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1978. The courthouse building "is a late but significant example of the arcaded-plan courthouse which had its precedent in Virginia's colonial courthouses and earliest civic buildings."
The NRHP listing included three contributing buildings: the courthouse, a clerk's office, and a jail. And it included one other contributing structure, which is a Confederate Civil War monument.
John P. Hill was builder of the courthouse building and was paid $1.010.95 out of a sheriff's levy of taxpayers to provide for that purpose. William R. Jones was builder of the jail.:3
