The Tweed Courthouse

Tweed Courthouse: Corrupt politician “Boss” Tweed financed construction of the courthouse, which cost twice the price of Alaska in 1867 and took 20 years to build. When the public caught wind of Tweed’s bribes and kickbacks, many Tweed and his associates were slapped with criminal charges. It’s said that his ghost still haunts the courthouse.
