About This Image:
There’s a quality to beautiful old courthouses like the Covington County Courthouse and many more built in the late 19th and early 20th century. The ones of this era seem to be of the “built to last” persuasion. Like many other genealogists out there, I find that my family records always seemed to the ones lost to the courthouse that burned in X year. Or perhaps these grand buildings simply highlight an era of prosperity and civic pride?
Certainly the historic Covington County Courthouse completed in 1916 exhibits an era of prosperity. The county had built a brick courthouse in the center of Courthouse Square in 1896. But the county’s population surged afterward as the railroad arrived in Andalusia, Alabama. With a rising star, the county built a new courthouse in the Beaux Arts style that would last for generations of Covington County citizens to come. The old Covington County courthouse in the middle of the square has long since been demolished, but its successor has stood for a century now.
There have been additions to the rear but the front facade shown in this Andalusia print remains relatively unchanged despite the passing years. It’s a building that its architect, Frank Lockwood, would still recognize today. If you’re even an armchair student of architecture, that name may seem familiar to you. Frank Lockwood was part of a family of architects of that era who designed a variety of now-heritage architecture across the southeast. The Covington County Courthouse and other Lockwood buildings are on the US National Register of Historic Places.
For me, this work was about family, too. My family history runs deep in Covington County. My maternal grandparents moved to Andalusia in the 1930’s, but my paternal side has roots in rural Covington County that run into the mid to late 19th century. Although I didn’t grow up in Andalusia, that beautiful old courthouse are among my early memories in life and inexorably tied to visiting family and old family friends.
I’d love if you took a second to share what brought you here. Do you simply love heritage architecture? Or do you likewise have ties to Covington County? Perhaps you are looking for a memento for yourself or a gift for someone you love? If you have any thoughts you’d like to share or comments, I would love to hear them!

I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…

My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
