The landmark Old Orange County Courthouse is Southern California's oldest court building, and has been witness to many of the events which shaped present day Orange County. From its dedication in 1901, this granite and sandstone building has been the traditional home of county government. Today the 30,000-square foot building has been restored to look much as it had at the turn of the last century. The building contains the Orange County History Center (which includes the Old Courthouse Museum, the Orange County Archives, and the library of the Pacific Coast Archaeological Society) as well as government offices. The building is on the National Register of Historic places and is a State of California Historic Landmark.
The Old Orange County Courthouse exhibition gallery displays both temporary and permanent exhibits relating to local and regional history. Please call for up-to-date information about exhibits and interpretive programs.

New Exhibit Features Segerstrom Family Archives
The Old Orange County Courthouse will host Segerstrom Pioneering Spirit: The American Dream from April 25 to July 14, spotlighting the Segerstrom family's influence on Orange County.
The show will showcase imagery from the Segerstrom family archives and Ruth Ann Moriarty's archives. The exhibition tells the story of the Segerstrom family's journey from Sweden to the United States, and their subsequent accomplishments and achievements developing Orange County -- both commercially and civilly -- into the international destination it is today.
