The Courthouse, to be one of the most beautiful in the Upper Cumberland when completed, is being completely overhauled and remodeled inside, and vaults are being installed in every office for the safety of county records. A larger and better arranged courtroom will be one of the features of the new courthouse. The remodeling will be completed at a cost of about five or six thousand dollars, Mr. Rowe said.
