Tentative dates are now set for the Woodbury Courthouse centennial anniversary celebration next year.

The county’s historical committee voting at their meeting just a short time ago to set the dates for that celebration May 1-5, 2018.

The Woodbury County Board of Supervisors will need to give the final approval to those days for the event.

Meantime, renovation work continues in the historic building ahead of it’s 100th birthday.

It’s very unique, we have that come from outside the United States just to take a look at it just because it is so unique. Very appreciative for the Board of Supervisors to allow us to bring this courthouse back into the condition where it needs to be,” said Building Services Director Kenny Schmitz.

The Woodbury County Courthouse opened for business on March 1, 1918.
