A View of the Old Punta Gorda Court House

Designed in the Classical Revival style by architects Leitner and Henson , it was built between 1927 and 1928 by Paul H. Smith  Additions were made to the building the 1960s and 1980s but in 1999 it was replaced by a new Justice Center and then fell into disuse. In 2005, the additions having been demolished, the Board of County Commissioners undertook the restoration and renovation of the original 1928 structure that remained.  Taken to highlight the powerful columns that define the building.
