Location:  290 Canada Street / Amherst Street

Built:  1945 – 1846

Style:  Classical Revival

Architect:  Winfield Sherwood

Contractor:  Unknown

 

Description:  The building faces west and is a two story red colored brick and concrete structure. The west front has a central arched entrance on the first story. A wide horizontal cornice runs below the second story windows. Above the entrance is a square brick clock tower with clock and steep roof at the top. In 1878 the judges’ quarters were added, giving the building its distinctive clock tower. Seven years later, in 1885, the small clerk’s building was replaced by a larger one that was added to the front of the judge’s quarters, to some criticism of its effect on the building as a whole.
