July 3, 2012 – Courthouse Grand Opening

Sun rising on the historic courthouse

The Todd County Historical Society were honored guests at the grand RE-opening of the courthouse for their efforts in saving this classic building. The cost of remodeling the old building was comparable in price to tearing it down and building a new facility. However, the aesthetic appeal of original building could not be duplicated by today’s ultra-pragmatic architecture.

Flag Raising over the historic courthouse

After rousing speeches by the Todd County commissioners and the societies own Jon Kroll, the veterans played a solemn song on the bugle while the flag was raised for the first time in many years.

And the Band Played On....

The local band belted out a tune in the blazing sun which was specially prepared for this event.

Cutting the ribbon...

While it is certain that many of the spectators had hoped for one gigantic pair of scissors for the “ribbon cutting”, instead the 5 commissioners each got a scissors and cut the ribbon in multiple places.

Interior of the Courthouse

After the ribbon-cutting, the crowd rushed inside to view the remodeled and air conditioned interior. The Courthouse was open for business despite the open house and touring people. A board meeting was held just prior to the ceremony and all regularly scheduled positions were operating.
