In 1835 a lottery was authorized to raise funds to replace the frame structure which had served as Courthouse since 1791. Construction of the new building began in 1837 following the sale and relocation of the original Courthouse to its present site on South Bedford Street. The Brick Hotel across the square was designated as the temporary seat of justice. Completed in 1839, the new Courthouse was designed by nationally known architect William Strickland, and constructed by Layton & Sipple. A major renovation and expansion project was completed in 1969.
