The Orange County Old Court House is one of the finest Richardsonian Romanesque architectural design left in California. It was built in 1901 and had served Orange County until 1979 when research, restoration and seismic strengthening began for a period of 13 years. Currently, it functions as a home to County government and may even be reserved for events including weddings, receptions, conferences, and picture photography. Most recently, the Courthouse was used for the motion picture, "A Few Good Men". At Pacific West, we are privileged to be able to hold our graduation ceremonies at the historic Old Orange County Courthouse.
