UPPER SANDUSKY, (AP) Officials in a northwestern Ohio county say they’re moving forward with plans to give the county’s historic courthouse a $2.25 million face lift.
The Blade in Toledo reported the Wyandot County Board of Commissioners has signed a contract for the project with a company that specializes in historic building restoration.
Wyandot County voters approved a six-year bond issue last year to generate some of the funds for the courthouse. The historic building was featured in scenes of the 1994 movie “The Shawshank Redemption.” Commissioners say the money will go toward repairing and restoring the domes, leaking roof and copper gutters of the 1899 courthouse.
Officials say there are no plans to move the court or county offices during construction.
