Where is the Courthouse?
High Point is part of Guilford County – District 18, but it does have its own, separate Courthouse. High Point Courthouse is at 505 East Green Drive, High Point, NC 27261.
Where do I park?
There is a parking deck, which all visitors to the Courthouse must use. There are two entrances to the parking deck: one on Park Street and one on East Commerce Avenue. This parking deck does accept debit and credit cards, as well as cash. The first 30 minutes is $0.50. After that, the rate is $0.50 per hour.
What should I not bring?
You cannot bring any electronic equipment, which includes phones, computers, cameras, etc. unless you have a Court Order stating you can. If you do have a Court order allowing you to bring in a phone (in a 50B case, for example), please have the Order with you when you go through security.
You cannot bring a weapon or anything that could be construed as a weapon.
There is a metal detector that you will have to go through in order to enter the Courthouse. So, it’s a good idea to leave any metal items that are not essential at home. This will make the security process much easier!
Where can I have lunch?
About a mile away on Elm Street, you can find Elm Street Café, which offers American Diner and Greek influenced food. A bit further down on MLK Jr. Drive is the lovely coffee house & crêperie Penny Path Café & Crêpe Shop. Or, if you’re in a pizza mood, Jimmy’s Pizza is on N Main. Depending on your time constraint, and the weather, these are walkable. Just remember, you are going to have to go back through security, and there is no outside food or drink allowed into the courthouse, so any doggie bags will have to be left in your car.
