The Brennan Court House

In 1893, Hugh Roberts, a Jersey City architect, designed the courthouse to be the cathedral of justice in Hudson County. Constructed of granite, taken from quarries at Hallowell, Maine, and trimmed with copper plates and bronze lanterns, the courthouse was designed in a style described as Beaux Arts or Modern Renaissance. Towering Corinthian pillars, ornate balconies, and carved ornamental scrolls, and lion heads all produce an impression of dignity and elegance. Engraved over the main entrance are the words, “Precedent Makes Law: If You Stand Well, Stand Still”.
