A marker near the Washington County Courthouse mentions three fires that burned it – 1860, 1862, and 1881.

While indexing old issues of the Alamance Gleaner (paper of Alamance County, NC), I found a reference to the 1881 fire.

The loss is described as $127, 000, of which there was little insurance.
