Putnam County was created in 1848, and Winfield was selected as the county seat due to its proximity to the Kanawha River. The courthouse was designed in 1900 by architect Frank Piece Milburn in the Romanesque Revival style with design features such as towers and arches. New additions were added in 1953, 1963, and 1974.
