The Gloucester County Courthouse is located in Gloucester, Virginia. The old Gloucester county courthouse is not being at this time. The last time I was here it was used for council meetings and public meetings. The courthouse was re-erected in 1766 on the site of a building destroyed by fire. It was restored and remodeled and the clerk’s office building added in 1956.

The Clerk's Office DOES NOT DO RESEARCH . Most staff will assist people in finding the materials, but it is up to the individual to do the research.
