Belize City courthouse and wharf, 1856
The Court House, first erected around 1819, was originally a wooden structure built to mirror the existing colonial architecture. The building housed a courtroom and other government offices, while it's lower floor comprised of apartments that were used by the Militia during Christmas muster." This photo is that of the first Court House with the cupola on top of it. I always though the second Court House was built where the first Court House was located. This photo shows that the first Court House could have been slightly further back than where the Court House is today and not at the same location. To the left looks like Riverside Hall. It has the flag raising pole.
