The Browning Courthouse

The James R. Browning United States Courthouse in San Francisco, a National Historic Landmark, is considered one of the nation’s most beautiful public buildings. Built at the turn of the twentieth century, it was intended to represent the affluence and increasing importance of the United States as it became a world power and to illustrate San Francisco’s wealth and importance as one of the leading cities in the United States.

The architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill led a project which included the repair, modernization, and restoration of the existing building. The building formally reopened as the U.S. Court of Appeals Building for the Ninth Circuit on October 17, 1996, the seventh anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake. It was renamed the James R. Browning United States Courthouse in 2004, in honor of one of the court’s longest serving judges.
