Facts

  • 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.
