I have about 130 now, and I find that when you come to a small town with a court house, I look for antenna's, the sheriffs office is usually close to the court house. In large city's, get near downtown, and find someone pushing a shopping cart along the street, and they will know where the courthouse is.:-P

In most smaller towns, it seems that something called Main Street, First Street, or name-of-town Street will often take you past the courthouse. Also, if you have a GPS in map view, look for streets moving around a big square or circle, and it's a good bet there's a courthouse in the middle of it.

Or, what the heck, ask Siri. She knows everything else; she certainly knows where the nearest courthouse is. ;-)

I'm not 100 % on this but usually if you GPS the city name I think it centers on the GEO center of town which is usually their courthouse. I know back in the day when the highway signs showed X miles to whatever city it was to the town square, but no telling now days.
