The old Courthouse is a beautiful building. We need to go back to see the upper floors. Give yourself more then an hour.

Stunning building
Reviewed By TeamWard July 2019

The Old Courthouse is near the Gateway arch and is a stunning building in the rain when we first arrived and gleaming in the sun later in the day, go visit.

Enjoyed going through the Old Courthouse. There is so much history here but not a lot in this courthouse. Did enjoy it though.
