Touring one of Souther California's oldest courthouses is not only and interesting but an educational pastime too. Especially that the tours, both self-guided and docent led, are free of charge, except for the parking ticket. The Old Orange County Courthouse is both an imposing and a simple building made from sandstone and granite.

There are some exhibits that can be viewed and some of the rooms which hold so much history in them.
