Grant Award: $400,000 (1991)
Grant Recipient: Bergen County
County: Bergen
Municipality: Hackensack

Designed by architect James Reilly Gordon ca. 1911, the Bergen County Courthouse is a fine example of the Beaux Arts classicism that typifies the civic architecture of the period. Its imposing design reflects the pride and confidence in government that characterized public building in the early twentieth century.

The grant funded restoration of the massive central dome, cleaning and repair of the marble, and replication of the deteriorated bronze doors.
