Auburn Things to Do: 38 reviews and 97 photos
Before the formation of Placer County in 1851, this hilltop where the present courthouse now stands was the site of bull and bear fights and public hangings.
This is a grandiose three-story structure topped by a bracketed cornice and simple Renaissance Revival inspired dome. Beautiful stairs lead to a main second floor from both the north and south. This building is one of four surviving northern and central California courthouses which retain most of their architectural ornamentation and magnificent domes.
Address: Maple Street at Lincoln Way
