One Big Gavel - Ohio Supreme Court-Yard

The Ohio Supreme Court Building, known as the Thomas J . Moyer Ohio Judicial Center since 2011, started as an idea in 1913 and completed construction in 1933.  The building housed many State of Ohio Departments.  It also housed the State House of Representatives in the 1990's during State House renovations.

In 1998, plans began to renovate the building.  Construction for that project began in 2001 and ended in 2004.  That same year, the building was opened to the public and still to this day you can take tours.

More detailed information on the history of this building can be found at the Supreme Court of Ohio website.

For those interested in visiting, the address is 65 South Front Street, Columbus, OH
