Courthouse Restoration

 

The Jenkins County Courthouse Restoration is a three phase project that will bring the courthouse back to its grandeur of 1910. Currently the first and second phases are complete and the third phase is in the planning stage pending funding.  The first phase of the restoration included all new HVAC equipment, a new roof and restoration of the pressed metal and all levels of the clock tower.  The second phase was mostly an exterior restoration that replaced the 6’ tall horizontal metal cornice around the courthouse to match the existing, 2-36” x 26’ tall fluted columns, 32 Scamozzi column capitals, a marble porch, handicapped ramp and handrails to bring the courthouse into compliance with the American With Disabilities Act.   The third phase is slated to be an interior restoration that will upgrade the life safety components of the courthouse, the restrooms, the interior doors and finishes throughout the courthouse and the courtroom.
