Marshall County Historical Society

Specific Need

Maintenance and upkeep on a 129 year old historic building can sometimes be rather overwhelming.  In 2017 we spent almost $60,000 to repair the chimney of the Historic Courthouse and $4,000 to repair some of the shingles. In 2018, after many rainstorms, we had to tuck-point the entire west side of the building to prevent leaking.  The cost for that was $ 94,432.  In 2019, also because of leaking and mortar issues, we spent $146,630 to repair the bricks and mortar on the south side of the building.  The east side and north side of the Historic Courthouse still need to be redone at a  cost of approximately $315,000.  

 

Our most important goal is to preserve this building and the history within for our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and anyone with an interest in the history of Marshall County.
