In 1792 the Spanish Colonial Government built a boy's public school on this site. After the Louisiana Purchase it served as the first United States District Court of the Louisiana Territory.

Here in 1815, after the Battle of New Orleans General Andrew Jackson was fined $1000 for contempt of court in a dispute following his refusal to lift martial law before confirmation of peace was received.

The old building was demolished in 1888 when the present building was erected.
