Facing rising renovation costs, the Randolph County Commissioners voted to demolish the building in June 2005 and construct a new, contemporary courthouse.
The community rallied to prevent the demolition, marked most notably by the production of a calendar with seemingly nude older women from Randolph County, aged 76-94, posing with strategically-placed replicas of the courthouse building.
The commissioners' decision was reversed in March 2006, and the county will seek to tap special funds from the Indiana General Assembly to restore the building.
This building originally featured an elaborate clock tower (150 feet tall) rising above a 3rd floor under a mansard roof (66 feet). This was removed in the early 1950s, leaving the 2-story building that stands to this day.
