- Building Directory
General Lorain County Government Office Information
Lorain County's building directories list the locations of Lorain County Offices, including Departments housed in the Administration Building and the Justice Center, and can help you plan your visit.
Before visiting any County office, please call the Automated Switchboard at 440-329-5000 and see our list of Holiday Closures. Any unexpected building closures should be posted on the County's social media outlets.
Although we make every effort to keep these directories up-to-date, errors may occur due to unforeseen turnover. All County Departments and related agencies are responsible for submitting office building directory changes as they come up throughout the year.
To update your office information, please send a detailed text or Microsoft Word file via email to Jessica Hozalski. You will receive an email notification when the directory has been updated.
