TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Pima County’s iconic blue-domed courthouse is now open but with a new job: It’s the county’s visitor’s and historic center and soon-to-be home to the University of Arizona Alfie Norville Gem and Mineral Museum.

The Spanish colonial revival-style building was built in 1929 and has housed a variety of county offices including the sheriff’s department, the school superintendent’s office, superior court and the consolidated justice court, assessor, recorder and treasurer’s offices, according to the Southern Arizona Heritage and Visitor Center.
