Built in the Late Victorian architectural style, the Territorial Courthouse was completed in June 1882. This building features a second-story courtroom where the flag from the USS Utah, which sank during the attack on Pearl Harbor is on display. Also displayed are re-created judges’ chambers, court recorders’ and sheriff’s offices, and several 19th-century items.
Be sure to check out the new jail off the back of the courthouse as well as the original jail in the basement which was in use through 1976. One second-grader commented, “I would hate to go to that jail, it’s scary.” The building was also built with a tower equipped with a striking clock facing all four directions. This unique clock is one of only two such clocks in the country, the other is located in the Smithsonian museum. Browse through history in the best museum in Southern Utah. Open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
