Grand old courthouse. Beautifully restored main courtroom. Period decorations and artifacts. Sacred Cod hanging in the center of the ceiling. Can't do better for a classic New England courthouse. Special statues out front as well. Good for photo ops.

There's nothing "wrong" with the Courthouse. It's just that - well, it's a government center and there isn't very much in the area that's likely to interest tourists.
