The "Grand Dame of Spring Garden Road" is a well-known landmark and stands as a monument to the pursuit of justice and democracy in Nova Scotia for more than 150 years. Though there is no record of pomp nor circumstance when the court opened, over its lifetime the court has experienced a celebrated history and, it is said, that it is the most decorated and flamboyant courthouse in the province.
The Court played, and continues to play today, a vital democratic role as it enables an independent judiciary to provide fair, expeditious and effective dispute resolution for all Nova Scotians.
The Spring Garden Road courthouse has done this successfully since the first trial was heard in October 1860 and remains today a functioning courthouse. The Supreme Court sat for the first time in the newly built Halifax County courthouse on Spring Garden Road in October 1860. Home of Supreme Court of Nova Scotia until 1960 when the building temporarily became the Provincial Library and then the home of the Provincial Court in 1971. The most recent renovations to the building were completed in 1985.
