More Graffiti Uncovered!
Paint conservator Chris Mills, with the assistance of volunteer Zach Hottel, exposed more graffiti in the 1795 historic courthouse in December. They focused on the front wall of the 1795 courtroom, next to the main door. This is a likely spot for graffiti and we wanted to find out what is there. Where there is no graffiti, we can use that valuable space for museum exhibits.
