The historic Napa County Superior Court building suffered significant damage to the exterior during Sunday’s 6.0 earthquake and will be closed for structural testing. The court announced the indefinite closure on its website Monday.
Until further testing and evaluation of structural safety, the civil and family court clerk’s offices will be transferred to the CriminalCourtsBuilding at 1111 Third St. in downtown Napa.
The Criminal Courts Building was not damaged and is open for business.
The old civil courts building had cracks in the façade and an entire upper corner of the brick building fell away, exposing an interior wall.
The original Napa courthouse was built in 1856. A newer model was built in 1878 and its cupola removed in 1931, according to Courthousehistory.com
