The Historic Courthouse on Main Street transformed into a modern mixed-use office and event space earned one of the state’s most prestigious statewide historic preservation awards this week.

The $32 million Courthouse project was made possible by a public-private partnership partially financed through historic tax credits.

Holly Wiedemann, development agent for the restoration, said the dome is the most “historically intact” area in the building.

The Courthouse is located at 210 W. Main St. Fayette County’s courts were housed in the building until 2001, when new courthouses opened on Limestone Street.
