The Stewart County Commission’s mission is depicted in the pediments above the north and south entrances to the county courthouse. If you look upwards from the sidewalk, you will see two colorful cornucopias---horns-of-plenty on either side of a laurel wreath.
Horns-of-plenty are the traditional symbols of prosperity, while the laurel is a symbol of honor and harmony. These symbols represent the Stewart County Commission 's desire to bring prosperity to its citizens by promoting commerce here for the benefit of all. Please contact the Commission if you want to open or expand a business in Stewart County!
