There are many restoration projects in the courthouse to be completed, which will take years. We focus on those that gain the greatest support. The restoration of the inside surface of the Mural Room windows is being sponsored by the Courthouse Docent Council. The funds are provided by visitor contributions. For information regarding this project, you can contact the County Architect.
