We stumbled upon the courthouse as we were window shopping. The building was not open so we were only able to see it from the outside.

Historical old colonial courthouse apparently still in regular use and right in the centre of the old town. Sited among the bustling shops on Front Street, this wooden building is an architectural delight.

The heritage and culture preserved here is great to see. The old is mixed in with the new which makes for an interesting walk.

When you are on Frontstreet in Philipsburg, St-Maarten, this is the place where all taxis want to pick you up: but stop and look around you will see the old Courthouse.

Water Taxi a good way to get from Pier to Beach and Front street in Philipsburg .Coach tour of Island incl boat tour of the Lagoon organised by Royal Caribbean was expensive . It did give one some indication of the destruction caused by the Hurricane two years ago with the time available in the Dutch capitol town too short .Weather on the day very mixed heavy showers

Beautiful building that is historic in the post city of Philipsburg, St Marten, the Dutch side of the island. It was closed the day we were there.

Right in the centre of the old town stands this loveley old wooden building. The Court was in session the day we visited so there was no access. ( unless you were on trial)!

This is the Granite County Courthouse, Philipsburg. It was built in 1913 and it costed 49,000$.

It is huge and it is beige.

At the middle, there is a white dome. Wow!

We have one door to enter. Inside it is gorgeous as well.

Worthwhile to see!

Visited late August...nobody around. Beautiful old courthouse & since my husband is in legal profession we had an interest in touring the interior of this building. The ladies inside at the entrance were not friendly & refused a simple request to view the interior of the building. The building was empty. No idea why they were so rude. They were only rude people on entire island the 8 days we were there.

Among the bustling shops - mainly jewelry shops on front street which attract cruise line passengers with free gifts galore, sits a quaint house which at first sight seems just to be a house. However on closer inspection you notice the sign ‘Courthouse’ This Building is part of the charm of Philipsburg history a long standing court house still in use to this day. A large wooden staircase leads you to the official chamber room were you can see wooden walled panels, judges bench, tables, chairs, wooden railings for visitors etc. No photos are permitted inside the building. Worth seeing - yes
