The Old District Office North was built around 1907 and was the earliest seat of the colonial civil administration of the New Territories. Administration and land registration of the northern part of the New Territories were carried out in this building. The building still housed a magistrate's court until 1961.[2]


The building was declared a monument on 13 November 1981.[3] It is now used by the New Territories Eastern Region Headquarters of The Scout Association of Hong Kong.[2]
