A grand ‘ol lady returned to the Jefferson County Courthouse, Tuesday, June 20, 2007.
For the past couple of years, restoration of the Statue of Liberty, that stood watch on the courthouse’s south lawn, has been taking place at Pech Radiator Shop by Matthew Mazza and County Supervisor Mike Pech.
Now after a complete restoration the statue has been put back on its pedestal.
The statue was a gift to the county from the Boy Scouts of America in the early 50’s, but was blown over by a wind storm in 2005 and suffered severe damage. A dedication for the statue will be held at a later date.
