County seat

A county seat is an administrative center, seat of government, or capital city of a county or civil parish. The term is used in Canada, China, Hungary, Romania, and the United States. The equivalent term shire town is used in the U.S. state of Vermont and in some other English-speaking jurisdictions.[1] County towns have a similar function in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, as well as historically in Jamaica.
