Sacramento Hall of Justice
813 6th Street
Built 1917

The Sacramento Hall of Justice was designed by the San Francisco architectural firm Shea and Lofquist when the City Beautiful Movement was at its zenith. The Beaux Arts/Neo-Classical style was chosen to communicate the importance of the building to the City of Sacramento.

With its formal, skillfully crafted composition and thoughtful application of classical motifs, the Hall of Justice exemplifies a restrained and eclectic approach to the architectural philosophy of using the classical models to depict civic pride.

The building retains a high degree of integrity of design, and conveys a strong sense of time and place.
