A National Historic Landmark, the Allegheny County Courthouse is considered among the finest examples of Romanesque Revival and includes Syrian arches, Byzantine capitals, late French Gothic dormer windows, and French Renaissance roofs.

One of its most striking attributes is the bell tower, which rises more than 229 feet above Grant Street. The Grand Staircase & Gallery features soaring arches and dignified columns, marble floors, and five
Impressionist-style murals by Pulitzer Prize-winning artist Vincent Nesbert.
