PARIS -- It's an iconic building sitting in the heart of Our Town. We're taking about the historic Edgar County Courthouse.

It was built in 1893. But, decades of wear and tear took their toll.

The courthouse got a makeover last year. Crews rebuilt the clock tower and renovated the statue of Lady Justice which adorns the top.

The entire project cost just over $1 million. All that money came from community donations.
