History: Louisa County was formed on December 7, 1836. It was named after Louisa Massey, who was very well known here at the time because she avenged the murder of her brother when she shot the party responsible. The first courthouse was a simple wood-framed building. In 1840, a second courthouse, measuring 40′ x 20′ (about 12 x 6 m), was constructed of stone. In 1854, a third structure was built. The courthouse used today was erected in 1928.
