The Robert H. Jackson Center
The Robert H. Jackson United States Courthouse is a U.S. Federal courthouse located in Buffalo, New York. The building occupies a full block of Delaware Avenue at Niagara Square, directly across from the Statler Towers and adjacent to Buffalo City Hall. The building features a glass entry pavilion that has all 4,536 words of the United States Constitution etched into the glass, and is topped off by a glass enclosure meant to resemble a glowing lantern when illuminated. In December, 2011 Congressman Brian Higgins introduced a bill, naming the courthouse for Robert H. Jackson, the only Western New Yorker to serve as Supreme Court Justice. The bill H.R.3556 was voted on and approved on July 23, 2012, and became law on October 5 2012.
