Your County Courthouse

I was supposed to do jury duty last week, but I never ended up having to go in. Regardless, it gave me the idea for this thread. (There is an older thread in the archives, but many of the pictures are gone.)

Here is the Kent County Courthouse in Grand Rapids, Michigan:

This facility was built in the 2000's after the Hall of Justice (built in 1967 in the name of urban renewal) was torn down in 2002...which apparently no one ever enjoyed being in:

When the Hall of Justice was built, it replaced the functions of the Richardsonian Romanesque courthouse built in 1892 (subsequently torn down):

'Tis a shame that our old courthouse (along with our old city hall and old post office) is gone...
