Join courthouse restoration event today
FLORESVILLE -- The Wilson County Historical Society invites community members to downtown Floresville today, Friday, January 25, at 1:45 p.m., to meet on the courthouse square by the giant peanut on the lawn. Those gathered will greet representatives from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Texas Historical Commission, and the “I Love TX Courthouses” Campaign, who are traveling to Floresville to visit the historic Wilson County Courthouse.
Supporters of the courthouse restoration projects hope the county may be awarded grant funds to help repair and restore the historic courthouse. A group photo will be taken of the participants in this event.
LaJuana Newnam-Leus with the Wilson County Historical Society said, “The more people who turn out for the photo, the more interest they will see that is being shown in support of our wanting to keep and restore our courthouse.”
Children and grandchildren also are invited to participate.
