Palm Beach County Showcases 1916 Courthouse Restoration

If you are interested in history, you might want to check out the Palm Beach County website. They have a nice spotlight on the process to restore the 1916 Courthouse. The dedication of the rehabilitated and restored structure will be March 15th at 2 p.m. For a while, I was on the committee overseeing the project from the Palm Beach County Historical Society point of view. That organization will move their offices into the newly refinished building and administer a County history museum.

I hope you are able to check out the actual building sometime in the near future. But, for now, check out the project with the link provided above. It gives a good sense of what it was like here in 1916 and what the state of affairs in the world was at the time, as well.
