    The Pacific County Courthouse is located three blocks up the hill from highway 101, and is reasonably well marked. It is a national historic landmark building. The rear of the building has been modified to have modern conveniences and access to the police dispatching center and criminal detaining area, but it has also been constructed in a way that attempts to mimic the historic part of the building.

    Tours of the building are available on regular (non-holiday) weekdays, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Weekend tours may be arranged through the Pacific County Historical Society.

    The park surrounding the courthouse also features a small pond and picnic area with a steep gravel trail. There is a small visitor information kiosk available as well at the north end of this little park, which explains a little bit of the history of the building and how South Bend was chosen as the seat of Pacific County.
