Bradley County Courthouse is a courthouse in Warren, Arkansas, United States, the county seat of Bradley County, built in 1903. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The courthouse was built using two colors of brick and features a 2½ story clock tower.

History

Bradley County was established in 1840 from Union County and was named for Hugh Bradley. Eventually Bradley County was fragmented into five more counties. Pennington Settlement, later renamed Warren, became the county seat around 1840. Two courthouses, a log cabin and later a brick and stucco building, were used for county business until the building of the current structure in 1903.
