CENTREVILLE, Md.- The new courthouse for the Circuit Court for Queen Anne’s County is scheduled to open to the public Monday.
People doing business must report to the new building in Centreville starting Monday. The building is located at 200 North Commerce Street.
County Administrative Judge Thomas G. Ross, Second Judicial Circuit said, “The new courthouse brings Queen Anne’s County into the 21st century and provides increased security and ADA compliance, as well as additional courtrooms and space for services and staff.”
The current courthouse, located across the street, will finish business June 14. The closing marks the end of 224 years of service in Queen Anne’s County. It was built during George Washington’s first term as president. The courthouse is the oldest in continuous use in the state of Maryland and one of the oldest courthouses in continuous operation in the country.
Normal hours of operation at the new courthouse will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The phone numbers used for the historic courthouse will be retained.
