Best Answer

Appomattox Court House began as Clover Hill Tavern in 1819. The name Appomattox Court House began to be used when the village became the county seat of the newly created Appomattox County in 1845. The McLean House (where Lee formally surrendered to Grant) was on the site of the original tavern.

The Court House building in the village burned down in the 1890s and was replaced by a newer building a few miles away.
