Who is in charge of the old Court House

I am not sure who is in charge of how the old Court House looks but I have to tell you, it look very unprofessional. I know it is not currently being used but there is no reason why it should look the way it does. All of the window blinds should be pulled down and look uniform throughout the building. So, if you know who is in charge of the old Court House, whether it be Ann Melton or Mayor Harris, please tell them they need to take a long look at this building and make it as presentible as possible...even though it is not in use. It make the County look poor, lazy and like we don't care.

Thank you!

I think the county is still the overseers of that building. I agree with you, they could do some things that would not be that expensive but would enhance the looks.

some times late at night ,..you can see some one looking out the upper windows ,...
some old timers claim the old court house is haunted with at least one ghost ,...
people 'in the know' say you can not keep the shades down ,....they will open on their own -- doors shut and mysteriously open by them selfs ,.....

the fact is --
county workers demanded to move ,to the new building ,...
the old court house is possessed

Ithink it would be wise to bulldoze 1t down, that would get rid of the ghost and also rid the problem of keeping the shades in line,and again would solve the problem of the tax payers having to keep it up when we are llready taxed to death,also could fill the big hole in with dirt,and it would keep the garden club with something to do all year around.

they will never knock it down ,...

though it wouldn't be a big loss,..

too bad it was built smack-dab in the middle of the town square ,..
way back then ,...i guess they didn't anticipate the horseless carriage

eventually when they finally do tear it down --
the evil sprit inside will be released ,....it will haunt and terrorize all of Columbia

The old Allen County Court House in Scottsville was once similar to the one on Columbia, but it was torn down many years ago.

Instead of having the old merry-go-round type intersection where you have to wait to merge into traffic to circle the court house, they removed the old courthouse and changed it into a 4-way stop type of intersection. The middle of the intersection is where the old court house used to be.

That left room for a small drive thru parking area (10 to 12 cars) at each corner of the square. They even cleaned up and beautified things a little. It's a lot more practical and really looks good.

If the city decides to have some sort of festival or other event now, the corner parking areas can be closed to traffic temporarily and can be used for vendors to set up booths or whatever.

Something for Columbia to consider doing maybe?
