Construction may be changing the face of buildings in Our Town: Paris, but it doesn't mean the town is forgetting its history.

Earlier this week we showed you the renovation of the courthouse in Paris. Here is a look at some of the old artifacts from the building.

You can find them at the Edgar County Historical Society.
They have the original stained glass windows and the original scales from Lady Justice.
She sits on the top of the courthouse.
A new base was put on the statue for stability.
Construction started a year ago and a grant is paying for it.
