There is no admission charge to the Courthouse, which is open from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday. Closed on State and Federal holidays.<p> The present Louisa County Courthouse was erected in 1905. It is the fourth courthouse built by the County. Louisa County was created in 1742 from part of Hanover County. The County was named for Princess Louisa, the daughter of King George II and Queen Caroline of England. Louisa was the wife of King Frederick V of Denmark.<p> The Courthouse Square upon which the Courthouse and jail are located was chosen in 1757 when it was the personal property of Thomas Johnson. A 1775 survey of a two-acre courthouse tract exists showing the tract to be within the property of Major Thomas Johnson. Also located on the Courthouse Square is a Confederate monument dedicated the same time as the 1905 courthouse. The artist was W. L. Shepherd of Richmond. The monument was arranged and paid for through the efforts of the Daughters of the Confederacy.<p>
