This lovely red brick antebellum structure served as the Livingston Parish Courthouse from 1835 to 1872 when the town of Springfield was the parish seat of Livingston Parish. It is a national register property located at the intersection of Second Street and Mulberry. Later on the parish seat was moved to the community of Port Vincent, where another former parish courthouse also stands. From Port Vincent the parish seat was moved to Centerville (Springville) in 1881 and finally in 1941 the parish seat was moved to its current location at the Town of Livingston.
