The Pioneer Courthouse, Portland, Oregon
My wife, Michele, took these photographs of the Pioneer Courthouse last month. The Pioneer Courthouse is a seat of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. According to this site on Historic Federal Buildings, the original courthouse was designed by Alfred Mullett, and completed in 1875. The courthouse was expanded in the beginning of the twentieth century.
The Pioneer Courthouse is on the east side (if my memory serves me) of Portland's beautiful Pioneer Courthouse Square. (I found this neat article on the history of the site and its redevelopment from the Nohad A. Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, Portland State University.)
