Magnolia Lands Grant To Help Preserve 105- year- old Columbia County Courthouse

Zoie Clift
Yesterday, historic
preservation grants were given during a ceremony at the Mosaic Templars
Cultural Center in Little Rock. Among the recipients of a $105,000 grant was Columbia County for work on the
Columbia County Courthouse in Magnolia.
The grant will be used to continue
working on preserving the courthouse, the domed, blond-brick building built in
1905 from a Renaissance Revival-style design by W.W. Hall. The courthouse is
located in the town square.
Mortar on the building has deteriorated during the
past century. Specific work includes retucking mortar between the bricks of the
courthouse.  Money for the grant
comes from the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program (AHPP), which is part of
the Department of Arkansas Heritage.
