Brockville Ontario Canada - Brockville Court House - Heritage Building

This courthouse is quite historic and attractive. There were several plaques and a bust of General Isaac Brock. They even have a fountain, but it wasn't working while we were here.

This courthouse was built in 1808. In 1811 they added bricks to the building. In 1824 it was replaced with a bigger building. The last courthouse was built in 1843, the one we see now. It's typical Neo-classical style.

However, the highlight of this courthouse, is the statue on the roof with the Canadian flag behind it. They called the statue Sally Grant. Many people believed that this person really existed. Truly, they named this statue Sally Grant in 1841. The original was made of cedar. Eventually she had to be restored and in 1981 they made a new statue, named Sally Grant 2. This is the one that is now up there.
