Built To Withstand Anything: Hamilton County Courthouse Celebrates 100 Years
The Hamilton County Law Library on the sixth floor is Berkowitz's favorite part of the building. It has soaring, rounded ceilings, granite columns, and at least one book that's very important to Berkowitz. It turns out the family Bible got left behind on the day of his swearing in.
“We went to the Law Library and asked if they had a Bible we could use and it just so happened I ended up taking the oath of office on the very same Bible that William Howard Taft did when he was sworn in as a judge of the Cincinnati Superior Court in 1887. To be a part of that history in the building and the library, it really is a tremendous honor.”
