Its interesting to see the layout of the old style courtroom. Its arranged for 3 judges, a tightly packed jury, and a penalty box for the accused. Beautiful room upstairs too!
Situated in a small historic downtown New Castle. Nice enough old building but not that interesting without the backstory. So, take the free tour given continuously everyday except Monday.

The tour starts off in the actual court room but then takes you upstairs to see the assembly room and an office. We really enjoyed walking on... More
The tour guide was very good and made this visit interesting. This building has been here since the 17th century. It's amazing to step back in time in a place like this.
