Courthouse
Randolph County Courthouse Begins Renovation
Tuesday, August 31, 2010
The Randolph County courthouse in Winchester, Indiana held a groundbreaking ceremony today for a $7.6 million, 18-month project to renovate it. Parts of the courthouse date back to 1875, and it was the subject of a lot of debate for the past few years about what to do with it. In 2005, county commissioners voted to demolish it, and in 2006, a group of women in their 80's who called themselves the "courthouse girls" made headlines when they posed nude in a calendar to help raise money to restore the courthouse.
During the renovation, county offices have been moved to Winchester's Town Square Business Center (located at 123 W. Franklin St.)   S3,
