The county celebrated its 150th birthday last week with the completion of the renovation of the historic county administration center.
During the yearlong project, which cost $6.1 million, the building’s exterior received a new coat of paint and plaster, and a second stairway was added to the tower to allow for public access.
“The County Administration Center is truly a landmark recognized by visitors and county residents alike,” said Dianne Jacob, chairwoman of the county Board of Supervisors. “It’s fitting to mark the completion of renovations to this beautiful, beloved building as we reach our sesquicentennial, an important historical milestone.”
Interior renovation on the building will continue. The renovated tower will be used for meeting space, and possibly a museum.
