The Dome Is Down

The Dome Is Down

The dome of Clark County's 140 year old courthouse is now on the ground. Crews from Zimmerman Excavating of Rutledge succeed in lifting the dome safely to the ground on their second attempt on Wednesday afternoon, shortly after 4:00pm.

Earlier in the morning, they had decided that they needed a larger crane, but after removing more of the structure to lighten the load, the crane they had was able to do the job.

More than 100 people gathered around the courthouse to watch the once-in-a-lifetime sight.
