The Auglaize County Courthouse may look the same on the outside, but inside the walls of the 118 year old building, the courthouse is one of the future.
Built in 1894, the Auglaize County Courthouse in Wapakoneta has withstood the test of time. An 8.6 million dollar project, two years in the making, resulted in the renovation of the interior of the courthouse.
Prosecutor for Auglaize County, Edwin Pierce is excited to get back into the courthouse and take advantage of the new technology. From TV's, to wireless access, Pierce's job will soon be easier.
Bruce Miller of Garmann/Miller & Associates, was selected to be the head architect on the project, something the Minster based company takes great pride in.
Many counties have decided to renovate their current courthouses in order to keep the iconic structures in the community. With a sound structure, the decision to remodel for the future was an obvious decision. Additional improvements that were made include handicap access with a wheel chair ramp, new basement and attic floors and the implementation of a single entry point for safety in the case of a lock down.
