Mandeville’s Courthouse

Just looking at the pictures one can tell this is a very old building, offering traces of Old England. Built in 1817 in the Jamaican Georgian style, a two storey structure, the Mandeville Courthouse stands as a national monument. Slave labor and limestone were use to build ‘this bastion of justice’. The courthouse is the oldest building in Mandeville and is still being use today.
