Charlestown Courthouse

If you walk up the stairs to the second floor of the Charlestown Courthouse, not only will you discover a lovely sanctuary that houses the public library, but you'll feel as though you've walked into the underside of an overturned boat. The exposed beams on the ceiling were designed to look like the hull of a ship, and many people stop here simply to take a picture of the unique room.


The courthouse building itself was built originally in 1825 and features large, cut-stone. A clock tower was added later, and massive shutters allow sea breezes to float through the rooms.
