Dating back to the 1800s it is a beautiful,building to admire from the outside. It is right on Spring Garden Rd . It is a functioning Court House but one day a year in June it's open to the public.

I was lucky enough to be in Halifax during the apparently annual open day. The chance to visit the courthouse was very interesting, particularly so for foreign visitors unfamiliar with the justice system in Canafa.

Halifax has plenty of interesting buildings to admire and the Halifax Court House on Spring Garden Road is one of them. Check out the interesting faces that adorn the façade.

The exterior is quite beautiful. The interior not so much! It is a functioning courthouse, so you may be able to see a trial in progress. The building is full of history and ghosts!

Do have a visit. The exterior is worth a walk past. The interior will dissapoint, but it is full of history and ghosts. Watch a court proceeding or two.
