Tomochichi Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 March 2020 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Tomochichi Federal Building and United States Courthouse is a courthouse of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia located in Savannah, Georgia. It was built between 1894 and 1899, and substantially enlarged in 1932. The building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 as Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, and was renamed in honor of the Creek Indian leader Tomochichi in 2005.

The building is located on a prominent site within the city's National Historic Landmark District. The building occupies an entire city block bounded by Bull, York, Whitaker, and State streets, adjacent to Wright Square. The building makes an important visual contribution architecturally to the city due to the high quality of its design and materials. Designed in the Second Renaissance Revival style, with richly carved ornamentation, it is one of the most distinguished and imposing buildings of its era in Savannah.

well, large and square, the beauty is in the details, and white on white, it is a tough subject to turn into a memorable photo, so I am impressed with your results

I like that it was named after an Indian leader. The building must be enormous taking up a full city block. I like the arched entrance.
