Potter County Courthouse rededicated

Amarillo - After four years, the Potter County Courthouse is now fully restored.

A ribbon cutting was held with over a hundred people in attendance.

The restoration project was funded by grants of more than 5-million dollars from the Texas Historical Commission.

The project, which began in 2008, aimed to return the 1932 courthouse to its former glory.

"The Potter County Courthouse restoration is a huge success for the city of Amarillo, as well as the entire county. It's a beautiful building, it's a great example of Texas courthouses from the height of the art-deco period. It's been beautifully restored by great crafts people working on this project and very dedicated staff here in the county to make it possible," says Mark Wolfe, Texas Historical Commission. 

We're told courthouse restorations have generated more than 8,000 jobs throughout the state of Texas and more than 19-million dollars in local taxes.
