Old Gila County Courthouse

Once the center of legal action in Gila County, the old Gila County Courthouse in downtown Globe now houses the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts. This was the second county courthouse to be built on the site.

The original courthouse was completed in September, 1888, but it was quickly too small to accommodate the booming community. The current huge stone structure was built from tufa rock cut from the San Carlos Reservation in 1905 and was used until the mid-1970s, when demands outgrew the size.

Vacant for many years, the courthouse is now the focus of an ongoing restoration project that already has uncovered beautiful wood floors and restored antiques original to the building.
