There are two public entrances to the Old Courthouse, and both require screening:

  • The main entrance in the front of the building off Lakeside Avenue.
  • Entrance from the Huntington Garage. This entrance is also accessible by elevator from any level of the garage.

If the elevator is out of order and you need special assistance, please call (216) 443-7628. A deputy sheriff will greet you at the west side entrance of the building where there is a wheelchair ramp.

Please read the court’s security advisement prior to visiting the court.
