Pickens County Courthouse/Face in the Window

This historic courthouse has an etched face in a window believed to be likeness of Henry Wells, a black man who was accused of burning the second courthouse building in 1876. During the 1800s, Wells was imprisoned in the courthouse. The legend has it that his face was etched into the glass during a lightning storm as a mob advanced for him. The present building was constructed in 1877. Each year the historical drama - "The Face in the Courthouse Window" by Barry Bradford is performed.
