Significance: Court Square, in the early nineteenth century was a small courthouse community of two-story townhouses, taverns, storehouses and offices. The area has retained much of the original flavor through the surviving architecture of the period. No. 220 Court Square is one of the important buildings that supports this historical feeling. Built sometime before the Civil War, the front facade is of Flemish bond with five course American bonding on all other walls. It is a hall-parlour house with decorative details being the brick cornice, projecting modillions and stepped gable roof. Over the years No. 220 has been used for offices by prominent lawyers and businessmen.
