After an eight-month, $2.2 million renovation, the historic Windsor County Court House will resume all court operations on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
Windsor County voters approved a $2 million bond on Town Meeting Day 2013 to finance the renovation of the building.
Groundbreaking took place on Dec. 30 on the project. This long overdue rehabilitation brings the building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and provides much-needed upgrades for security, life safety, energy efficiency and efficient court operations.
The Court House was constructed in 1854-1855 and served a both the Court and the Woodstock Town Hall until 1899, when the town constructed a separate Town Hall on the west end of The Green. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a prominent public building in the Village of Woodstock, the county seat of Windsor County.
County residents are invited to an Open House Friday, Aug. 29, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 12 The Green.
The official opening of the court, with ribbon-cutting, will occur Tuesday, Sept. 2, at 9:30 a.m.
