The Victoria County Court House is an historic building in Baddeck, Nova Scotia.
In 1851, Victoria County was split off from Cape Breton County, leaving the new county without a court house of its own. The court house was constructed in 1889 by Phillip MacRae, a carpenter from Big Baddeck. The building was recognized as an historic property in 1989, under Nova Scotia Heritage Property Act.
The court house is a two-storey building constructed in the Classical Revival style with a hipped roof and built of granite and wooden clapboard. The building was originally asymmetrical in design, with a centre block and east wing; a western wing was added in 1967.
