Designed by architects J.N. Preston & Son and built in 1882-1883, this courthouse included juror sleeping rooms on the third floor.
Since 1914 this building has been owned by the Masonic Rio Grande Lodge No. 81, which had been meeting since 1848 under a provisional charter, receiving its formal charter in 1851. The cupola, which once capped this structure was destroyed in the 1933 hurricane.
