After more than two decades of uncertainty, a new federal courthouse will finally be constructed and named in honor of South Carolina Governor Carroll Campbell.

Expected to be completed sometime around 2021, the $105 million, 10-story building will open its doors at its location on the corner of East North and North Spring streets.

Speaking at a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, Senator Lindsey Graham said it was an apt location for the courthouse, as it will stand just a few steps away from where Governor Campbell owned his first business, the Corner Pocket pool hall.  

The project was on the federal government’s docket for more than twenty years, when it finally received full funding in 2016.

The current federal courthouse a block away on East Washington Street, which was built in 1937, will go on to house the Court of Appeals and Bankruptcy Court, along with other federal agencies.
