Old Orange County Courthouse


category : Historic Courthouses
Designed and built by John Berry in 1844-1845. Outstanding example of Greek Revival architecture with details of woodwork and stair brackets from Asher-Benjamins' pattern book.

The courthouse is still in operation for county judicial business, so some areas are restricted. Free.
