Luzerne County Courthouse

200 North River Street
Wilkes Barre, PA 18702

Built in the early 1900's, this four story sandstone building serves as the center of Luzerne County's judicial system. From the columns and terra-cotta roof outside, to the marble and gold leaf accents inside, the structure epitomizes the wealth and strength of Luzerne County at it's peak near the turn of last century. Visitors choosing to view the interior will have to go through security screening.

Recommended Ages: Kids, Teens, Adults, Seniors

The courthouse is another one of Wilkes-Barre's many amazing pieces of architecture, both in size and detail. Keep in mind this is a working courthouse, so please be respectful when visiting.
