The Pioneer Courthouse is one of the oldest standing buildings in Washington County, Utah. It is free to the public to tour to see the Courtroom, in use until 1960, the jail with its three cells, and a variety of historical displays. The Courthouse has been placed on the National Register of Historic Buildings and is truly a beautiful sight, serving as a reminder of the skills and perseverance demonstrated by our early settlers.
