This is actually not the original site of the Rockland County Courthouse. Prior to its home at 1 South Main Street in New City, the courthouse was located in Tappan. At the time, Tappan was the county seat of Orange County. At the time (the 18th century), Orange County actually encompassed what is now Rockland County. The Rockland County Courthouse was moved to New City in 1774, and it has remained there ever since, albeit in a different form. In 1827, the old wooden courthouse was replaced by a two-story brick building. In 1929, more renovations were done. The courthouse transformed once again into what we see today.
The Rockland County Courthouse is open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm excluding New York State holidays. Criminal cases are heard every day. Parking is available in the municipal lot, and if you need public transportation, you can take the Red and Tan Bus / Rockland Transit.
The Supreme Court Justices at this courthouse are the Honorable Judges Robert M. Berliner, Linda Christopher, Gerald E. Loehr, and Thomas E. Walsh. The Rockland County Court Judges are the Honorable Kevin F. Russo and David S. Zuckerman. Also located at 1 South Main Street is Rockland’s Surrogate Court and Rockland Family Court.
