Old Pima County Courthouse, Tucson

(3.2/5 based on 20 reviews on the web)
Pima County Courthouse is the former main county courthouse building in downtown Tucson, Arizona. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was designed by Roy Place in 1928 in Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival style architecture.The building previously housed the Pima County Superior Court (1930-1977) and later, the Pima County Consolidated Justice Court (1977-2015), which handled lower-level state criminal matters and small claims cases. As of February 2015, court proceedings for Justice Court are held in a newer building shared with other Pima County departments, which is located at 240 North Stone Avenue. Superior Court proceedings are held in the Pima County Superior Court building, located at 110 West Congress Street.As this building will be vacant by 2017, as the various departments and court functions relocate to newer facilities, Pima County is planning to convert the historic Courthouse to museum space. The county is in discussions with the University of Arizona and the Tucson Museum of Art to house exhibits; there will be a new café, and a memorial to the victims of the 2011 Tucson shooting that seriously wounded then-U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords.
