On Thursday, the Auglaize County Historical Society was joined by the board of commissioners for a ceremony to dedicate the new building marker at the courthouse. The plaque was purchased through funding given by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation, a private organization from New York that supports the celebration of community history. Although the courthouse has been included in the national register for historic places for more than 40 years, no sign has been there indicating so.
The halls of the Auglaize County Courthouse were packed as people came out to celebrate the building’s 125th birthday.
It was an opportunity for the community to see the details of the building up close and personal, looking much like it did over 100 years ago thanks to the county’s preservation work.
“We’ve heard of some horror stories across the state where they’ve kind of updated and did away with the courthouse but we felt about ten years ago that this building needed to be preserved,” said Auglaize County Commissioner Don Regula.
