The Madison County Courthouse renovation project has received the 2019 Pat Earle Award from the Preservation Association of Central New York.
The award is given for a singular outstanding historic preservation project that benefits the community. Madison County Historian Matt Urtz spearheaded the submission and LeChase Senior Project Manager Laird Updyke submitted a letter supporting the nomination.
LeChase was CM agent for the 18-month renovation of the 100+ year old building. One key milestone came in April, when crews lifted and placed a 13-foot replica of the Lady Justice statue that originally adorned the dome in 1909. The county held a grand opening ceremony for the renovated courthouse on May 25.
Congratulations to everyone who has played a role in this successful, and historic, project.
