According to the Office of the Mayor, The City of New Orleans launched its renovations effort on the Historic Algiers Courthouse, located on 225 Morgan Street. The refresh will cost $1.2 million and are funded in part by FEMA.

Renovations include a new slate roof, ornamental metal signage, replacement wood decking in the east and west towers on the upper floors, and miscellaneous exterior upgrades and repairs. The City previously renovated the courthouse between 1979 and 1984.

The Architect of Record Linfield, Hunter, and Junius, Inc. and Dynamic Construction, LLC. is the general contractor.

Built in 1896, The Algiers Courthouse is one of two city courts (with the first located on 421 Loyola Avenue), handling small claims, marriage licenses and weddings. In fact, the courthouse is listed as one of the most beautiful places to get married in New Orleans.
