Broome County Courthouse is a historic courthouse located at Binghamton in Broome County, New York. It is a massive ​2 12-story structure, built on a raised foundation, in the form of a Latin Cross and topped with an elegant copper dome. Originally constructed in 1897-1898 in a "T" shape, the south wing was added in 1916-1917 to form the cross. It was designed by noted New York State architect Isaac G. Perry.[2] The courthouse is located within the boundaries of the Court Street Historic District.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
