Frontenac County Court House Rules

Frontenac County Court House is a National Historic Site of Canada. It is a large, limestone court house, built in the mid-19th century in the Neoclassical style featuring many of the traditional exterior elements of large-scale mid-19th century court houses. Its imposing columned portico and dome overlook a wide expanse of park to the shoreline of Lake Ontario. It is located in a downtown residential area of 19th-century homes, adjacent to Queen’s University, in the city of Kingston. The formal recognition consists of the building on its legal property at the time of designation.

features many of the traditional exterior elements of large-scale mid-19th century court houses.

Designed by architect Edward Horsey, the building’s elaborate and imposing façade with a central portico, flanking wings and domed cupola, and the elaborate mix of Italianate and classical detailing, are typical of mid-19th century Ontario judicial buildings. The court house was rebuilt by architect John Power and contractor George Newlands in 1874 following a fire. The only significant exterior change was the central dome, which was given added height and emphasis.
