The Charlotte County Courthouse, a Neo-Classical structure with Greek and Roman influences, was designed by architects Leitner and Henson of St. Petersburg, Florida. Large pediments and columns create a grandiose facade with a parapet roof. Original plans were changed to provide a second floor jail and living quarters for the jailer and his family. Costs totaled $200,000. The building was dedicated on March 20, 1928.
Expanded in the 1960s and 1980s to accomodate the changing needs of Charlotte County residents, the Courthouse served as the center of civic and community life for 71 years until the Justice Center opened in 1999. The modern additions were removed and later the Courthouse was closed, until the Board of County Commissioners voted in 2005 to revitalize the structure, restore the facade to its 1928 appearance and rehabilitate the interior, preserving this important historical landmark for public use.
the building are located at 227 Taylor Street.
The court house was very badly damged in the hurricanes of 2004. There is a lot of discussion on what to do with it.
