A Wikipedia-16px.png Courthouse (sometimes spelled court house) is a building that is home to a local court of law and often the regional county government as well, although this is not the case in some larger cities. The term is common in North America. In some other English speaking countries buildings which house courts are simply called "courts" or "court building".

Used to mark a courthouse. A place where justice is dispensed.
