We don't have counties in Newfoundland, but we do have a bunch of towns which act as service centres for broader regions which are loosely defined by the people that live there. Stephenville has the courthouse which serves Bay St. George and the southwest coast of the island, as far east as Francois.


It was built in the 1950s as a dormitory on the U.S. Air Force base here (Ernest Harmon AFB) and converted to a courthouse following the base's closure in 1967. It has no real presence from street level. It's dwarfed by the college and a large apartment building which you can see rising up above it in the background, a bar across the street which sits on a hill, and is surround by 6 other buildings which look identical to it and have been converted to apartment buildings.
