The old courtroom is where Dillinger (1934) & Loughner (2007) were seen. It is unlike any courtroom in the city. You can get a tour- ask security & they can take you to Judge Castillo's courtroom. If you are lucky they can take you up to the cupula- but that is very rare.

I took a walking tour sponsored by the Tuscon Historical Society and this was one of our stops.....a lovely building. Rivals some I've seen in Europe. Would have liked to see inside....but it is a working location.

The joke is that Tucson should have a bulldozer in it's logo. They are not big on historic buildings so having this historic building is a treat in downtown Tucson.

This is a beautiful building in downtown Tucson. Take a few minutes to actually walk around the building and adjacent grounds.
