Work began on the Ketchikan Federal Building on 03/03/1937 following the designs of Cleveland-based architects, Garfield, Stanley-Brown, Harris and Robinson. J.B. Warrack Construction Company obtained the contract to build the six-story office and court building, completed on 03/05/1938. In 2014, the United States Forest Service Tongass National Forest staff occupied several floors of the building; a courthouse function on floor 5, while the United States Customs and Border Protection maintained offices on the first floor.

The General Services Administration (GSA) supervised a renovation of the Ketchikan Federal Courthouse in 1977-1978, denuding the building of some of its decorative detailing. A subsequent remodeling also modernized the building.
