Sumter County Courthouse

The Sumter County Courthouse, built in 1912-1914, is an historic courthouse building located in Bushnell, Florida, It was designed by Atlanta-based architect William Augustus Edwards who designed one other courthouse in Florida, two in Georgia and nine in South Carolina as well as academic buildings at 12 institutions in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. He designed most of the original buildings on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville. In 1989, The Sumter County Courthouse was listed in A Guide to Florida's Historic Architecture, published by the University of Florida Press.

There is now a much larger Sumter County Judicial Building nearby which bears a striking resemblance to the 1912-1914 courthouse because it incorporates much of its architectural features in its central facade.
