The Raleigh County Judicial Center is located in Beckley, West Virginia. The 66,000 square foot facility houses the Magistrate Court, County Circuit Court, and Family Court in addition to clerk’s offices and administrative offices. The lower level contains a sally port and secure holding areas.
The design of the building was intended to blend well with older surrounding buildings in downtown Beckley. The corner near the main entry boasts a clock tower that extends 60 feet above street level creating a prominent downtown landmark.
