This location is a small historical landmark out in a rural area of the county. In fact, the photo above is the first official building after Pittsylvania became a county in June 1767 according to the Pittsylvania Historical Society.
The clerk’s office was restored to beauty and architectural authenticity by the Chatham Garden Club. The clerk’s office and nearby courthouse and gaol are home to Pittsylvania Historical Society’s annual Autumn Potpourri in October.
The buildings are across from each other on Sago Rd in Chatham, Va. They are 11 miles west of Chatham and are the location for the Callands Festival or Autumn Potpourri festival in October.
It’s a nice place to stretch your legs if you are already heading through the area. If not, plan your visit to coincide with the festival when there will be historical interpreters on site to provide a rich educational experience.
