Tuscaloosa Federal Building and Courthouse
The Tuscaloosa Federal Building and Courthouse is home to the U.S. District Court, the U.S. Probation Office, the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Bankruptcy court, congressional and senator offices, the Social Security Administration, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The classic architecture, modeled after the Greek Temple of Zeus at Nemea, was part of the Design Excellence program through the U.S. General Services Administration. The 127,000 square foot structure’s regal stance was conceptualized to let people know they are entering a place of justice and not just an average office building.
