Henderson County Courthouse Earns Award

February 5, 2009

The beautifully restored Henderson County Historic Courthouse in Hendersonville, NC.After completing its two-year, $10.8 million renovation, the Henderson County Historic Courthouse was honored January 29th with the North Carolina Office of Urban Development award for “Best Public Building Improvement”.  When a new courthouse was opened in 1995 in Hendersonville, the old courthouse became abandoned.  But, with the recent renovation, the Henderson County Historic Courthouse houses the county’s Heritage Museum as well as administrative offices for the county.  Part of the renovation included adding a 12,000 square foot annex for office space, rest rooms, a community room, museum space and a meeting facility for the county commissioner that seats 140 people.  The renovation of the old courthouse as well as the award of recognition have helped revitalize Hendersonville’s downtown area and bring part of Henderson County’s history to the forefront.  To find out more about the Hendersonville community, events or real estate, please contact me.
