Bradford County Courthouse

301 Main Street


Among the most prominent historic buildings in Towanda and a good example of beaux arts classical style architecture is the third

Bradford County Courthouse.  Ground was broken in April 1895 and the cornerstone was laid with appropriate ceremonies

Sept. 7 the same year.  The contractor was Thomas Bradley of Corning, NY.  The pedimented street facade has massive pilasters

above a rusticated base, and an anthemion surrounded by olive branches proclaims "Justice, Law, Mercy" in the pediment.  A tall

octagonal dome rises 70 feet above first floor level and is roofed with brown-green terra-cotta tiles.  The sandstone was quarried

from Barclay Mountain and the beautiful interior woodwork is all highly finished white oak native to Bradford County.
