Historic Courthouse 1893


Historic Courthouse 1893 is fortunate to be in an area with ample free street parking, upwards of 170 free spaces within 2 blocks.  There is also a free 45 car municipal lot to the west of the venue. For our Friday and Saturday events, 50 free spaces are included across the street at St. Matthias Church.

Additionally, a municipal parking ramp is located three blocks away at 241 South St. (get directions)  which can accommodate 480 cars and allows overnight parking.  The fee is $3 per vehicle per 24 hours.  The municipal parking ramp is also located close to The Clarke Hotel.  Many guests find this as a great parking option when lodging at The Clarke Hotel and attending an event at Historic Courthouse 1893, as both are walkable from the parking ramp.  Please contact the parking ramp directly at 262-524-3622 if you need further information.
