Where

Built in 1841, this historic courthouse in Newburgh, New York was designed by Thornton Niven. It is nearly identical to the courthouse he designed in nearby Goshen, New York. The Newburgh courthouse was the home of Orange County Courts until 1972, when it moved over to Goshen, leaving Newburgh without the county courthouse for the first time since 1798.

Today, the old courthouse houses the Records Management administrative office, the City Historian, and the Newburgh Heritage Center.
