Decorative Elements Project

During the Courthouse Renovation Project in 2011 & 12,  a large mural on the Courtroom ceiling was uncovered.  The County then contracted two investigative studies by two different studios to look into the history of the mural and other decorative elements of the Courthouse's interior. 
After receiving grants from the Jeffris Family Foundation and Minnesota State Historical Society, the County has contracted with the John Canning Company from Cheshire Connecticut to repair and preserve the historic interior elements of the Grant County Courthouse.
