Maryborough Historic Buildings Part 2

We parked at McLandress Square, where we were surrounded by a trio of beautiful old buildings.
The Court House, built in 1893 in the Free Classical style and still in use as a Magistrates' Court, features arches, balustrades and bluestone sourced from Castlemaine.
