This three-story building served as the parish courthouse until completion in 1939 of the present courthouse in Chalmette (SB4). The building was converted for use as a school until flooded from Hurricane Katrina, after which it was restored for various parish uses, including a library and a sheriff’s office, and rental space for events. It is a handsome Beaux-Arts classical design with paired Corinthian columns outlining a loggia in front of the second and third stories. An entablature and balustrade complete the building.
