Old Magistrate's Court
Potchefstroom, North West

Type:Magistrate's Court
Style:French Renaissance
Street:Greyling Street

Initially housing the offices of the magistrate, police, clerical staff and post office, this building's cornerstone was laid on 6 July 1895. Architecturally the building differs from most other buildings of the ZAR era in that its mansard roof shows obvious French Renaissance influence.
