Commission Will Oversee Courthouse Preservations

Last updated on Monday, April 28, 2008

(FARMLAND) - Indiana now has a courthouse preservation advisory commission.

Legislation to create the commission was inspired by the Farmland Ladies Bridge Club and their calendar to raise funds to save the Randolph County Courthouse.

Several years ago members of the bridge club created quite a stir when they decided to pose nude - with strategically-placed replicas of the courthouse - to raise funds for its preservation.

The new commission will investigate the need for preservation, restoration and maintenance of historic courthouses as well as assist county officials with such projects.
