On this special two-hour guided tour led by Judge William Sherwood, we’ll pass through the “new” court building added just over a decade years ago on our way to the historic 1929 Courthouse.

Highlights include:

  • Classic Art Deco architecture and decoration, including fountains and waterfall depictions.
  • Two historic courtrooms in use continuously since 1929 in their original condition.
  • The restored historic Dutch Garden, designed by the famous art critic and landscape architect Mary Mowbray-Clarke.

The courts contain original art from the Art Deco era and new art installed by the Arts in Public Places initiative of Rockland, as well as oil portraits of Rockland County judges.

Rain or Shine * Complimentary light refreshments at the Dutch Garden Teahouse, adjacent to the courthouse, will follow the walk
