Federal Building & J. Roy Rowland Federal Courthouse
100 N. Franklin Street, Dublin, GA 31021
In the early 1930s, the federal government decided it was cheaper to construct a new federal courthouse in Dublin than to pay the costs of prosecuting all the local bootlegging cases elsewhere. The building, however, was not actually completed until 1936, three years after Prohibition was repealed. The J. Roy Rowland Federal Courthouse (named for a long-time Congressman from Dublin) contains federal government departmental offices and a federal courtroom.
