Luzerne County Courthouse
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Luzerne County Courthouse is a fine example of Classical Revival architecture. As such, it is one of the city's more prominent and important landmarks. It was designed by architect Frederick John Osterling and built in 1909 after four years of construction. Its most prominent features are its large main dome and the four smaller domes. The main dome is 53 feet wide, the base of which is 100 above the courthouse floor. A virtual tour of the building (see link below) is available to see it up close.
