An inspiring an relaxed neighbourhood that oozes history and knows what it's all about. One of the oldest neighbourhoods in St. Thomas, the Courthouse Neighbourhood is beautiful all times of year, but especially in Spring when the magnolia trees that dot the neighbourhood are in bloom. Friendly people with a strong sense of community live here and the pride they take in the history of this place is evident.
