Washington County Historic Courthouse expanding guided tours

The Washington County Historic Courthouse is expanding guided tours to three tours a day Wednesday through Sunday, and evening tours Thursday and Friday.

Tours at the Historic Courthouse will be at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Tours will also be at 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

Visitors will enjoy a short introductory video before viewing the courtroom, 1900s county jail, and exhibitions, and hear stories of the buildings construction, offices, and the people who worked at courthouse. The tours are free; donations are accepted.

To ensure the best tour experience, public tours are limited to 10 participants per tour guide. Large groups will be divided for a tour rotation. Those visiting with a large group of 10 or more may call 651-275-7075 to make arrangements. Unscheduled tour groups may be asked to tour the building without a guide.
