Orange County's Original Courthouse
California State Historic Landmark 837
#837 Orange County Courthouse
Built in 1900 of Arizona red sandstone, this is the oldest existing county courthouse in southern California. Significant and far-reaching court decisions were handed down here, including the "Whipstock" case which dealt with slant oil drilling, interpretation of farm labor law, and the overall trial resulting in law regulating explosives.
