Now home to the Beaufort-Hyde-Martin Regional Library, the building is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The original courtroom may be viewed on the second floor by request at the lending desk. It contains a portrait of Henry, Duke of Beaufort, the Lord Proprietor for whom the county was named. The library also houses paintings and sketches of historic buildings in Washington, some of which are no longer standing.
