Georgetown has a very nice historic district with several buildings of historic and/or architectural significance. There are 20 individual locations in Georgetown listed in the National Register of Historic Places representing a variety of architectural styles. I especially liked the Brick Hotel which was completed in 1837 using a combination of the Federal and Greek Revival styles of architecture. It was converted to a bank in 1955 and then restored and made into a hotel again in 2008. I also liked the Richards Mansion House, started in 1796 and added onto between 1835 and 1845 and again in 1883. It is a nice combination of Federal, Greek Revival, and Second Empire styles of architecture. The old courthouse and the "new" 1837 courthouse are also noteworthy as are a number of the churches and the whole "courthouse circle".
