Philipsburg Courthouse, Philipsburg
Categories: Government Buildings, Tourist Spots
Explore Philipsburg's history with a visit to Philipsburg Courthouse, the former home of the town's founder, Commander John Philips. Built in 1793, the emblematic Dutch colonial-style building has since undergone several renovations and served different purposes, including fire station, jail, and post office. Today, it is an active courthouse--so those wishing to see the interior should temper expectations, as court proceedings in progress may impede visits. Outside, note the pineapple that sits perched at the top of the building, an international symbol of welcome.
