Courthouse renovation honored by CNY preservation group

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.
