Special Lecture: Greatness to Glory: The Restoration of the Historic 1916 Palm Beach County Courthouse
After many individual and collective efforts–led by community preservationists and Historical Society leaders–to save the 1916 Courthouse from demolition, the Board of County Commissioners voted in April 2002 to share the structure with the public, and to restore it to its original neoclassical grandeur.
Rick Gonzalez of REG Architects, Dale Hedrick of Hedrick Brothers Construction, and Harvey E. Oyer III of Shutts & Bowen LLP will share their stories of “unwrapping” the building and giving it a new life while maintaining its authenticity.
