What a shame, seems like the County could have taken care of the bldg. thru the years and it would not have to be torn down. Now they are leaving those ugly brick bldg`s at the end... I am sure they will build something as ugly & unfunctional as they have in the past.....Way to go Wythe County & their fearless leader Mr. Dalton.... What a joke!
sad to see it go

I can't believe that more of the old timber and other things of value were not salvaged. The money they have spent to demolish it and re-build would more than covered a restoration. Seems as if the County Administrator doesn't care much for beautiful things....or what the public wants.

How much longer will he be there to screw up our County???? Too long I am sure.

I agree with both of the above posts. Such a beautiful bldg to be replaced with something as ugly as the "New Courthouse" I am sure. Why can't they EVER do anything right? Instead they continue to build useless bldgs for everyone else while the master is quite comfy up on capital hill.....It's time for a change in Wythe County!
