About Court House Cultural Center

The Court House Cultural Center (CHCC) in Stuart, Florida, stands as a testament to the town’s rich history, originating in 1908 as the town’s inaugural schoolhouse. Threatened with demolition in 1989, the community rallied to secure grants from the Florida State Department of Historic Preservation, ultimately preserving this architectural gem.

Today CHCC hosts fine art exhibitions and is in the National Register of Historic Places.

The CHCC underwent a transformation in 1923, transitioning into the Martin County Courthouse. In 1936, the Works Progress Administration (WPA) played a pivotal role, funding an Art Deco addition.

Saved from the brink of destruction, the restoration efforts in 1989 meticulously retained original features such as awning windows, the judge’s vault, marble staircase, and the terrazzo floor. Today, the CHCC proudly showcases its 1937 design, housing two fine art galleries adorned with artifacts from its courtroom past.
