More marriage licenses have been issued in this courthouse than any other courthouse of its size in the United States. Completed in 1912, still in use today, it was designed by noted Nevada architect Frederick J. DeLongchamps in the neo-classical style and has several ornate features. Many famous people received their wedding licenses and divorce decrees in this old courthouse.

Stopped by last month, and wanted to see the changes made w/in month. This place just keeps getting better and better with the use of space, and using a former Post Office for food & beverage. Love the location, and free parking, along the river!

Is it haunted? Probably. Lots of history in these walls. Its neat to walk around and see the murals and the architecture. I love walking in this old building and feel its heart.

If you love old buildings and wonderful architecture, then the Washoe County Courthouse is one that you need to see. Like so many that were built in the days that didn't have modern equipment, it makes you think about how it could have been done....More
