John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse

“The most beautiful site in Boston does not belong to the judges, it does not belong to the lawyers, it does not belong to the federal government. It belongs to the public.”

-Justice Stephen Breyer


As the HQ for the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, this award-winning building defines architectural splendor with its waterside glass wall facade. The federal courthouse—which is named in honor of Congressman Moakley, a public servant and life-long South Boston resident, offers art and cultural exhibits throughout the year.
