Sevierville's 108-year-old courthouse is an excellent example of Victorian architecture. Sevierville is very proud of its downtown and historic town square. Years ago, at Temple's Feed Store, County Commissioner Jimmie Temple married over 15,000 couples next to his bags of feed and bedding plants. The feed store is no longer there but Temple continues to conduct marriage ceremonies downtown.
A variety of wedding chapels call historic downtown home and so does the town's bus station which is located in Taulbee’s Restaurant. Sevierville's 108-year-old courthouse, located in the heart of downtown, is an excellent example of Victorian architecture. Built in 1895-96 for $22,000 and renovated in 1970-74 for $577,000, the courthouse is a direct reflection of the care and pride residents put into keeping the hometown feeling alive in downtown Sevierville. The latest addition cost $500,000 Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the courthouse stands proud with 13-inch thick brick walls and a foundation made of limestone hauled from the old McCown place, the site where Vulcan Materials Company now stands. The Seth Thomas Clock in the courthouse tower originally cost $1,353 plus $42.55 freight.
