Wayne County Courthouse

Project Description

Designed by architect Thomas Boyd in classic Second Empire style, this stately 1879 building is composed of sandstone and features a clock tower, arches, mansard roof (four-sided gambrel-style hip roof), and four statues of the mythological character Atlas, made out of Berea stone.

The work included the restoration of the clock and bell tower, restoration of the decorative sandstone, decorative sheet metal restoration and replacement, slate roof replacement, replacement of the built-in copper gutter system, tuckpointing, repair, and painting.

The courthouse remained open and operational throughout construction. The meticulous restoration of this historic building earned the project the 2016 Excellence in Exterior Restoration Award by Cleveland Restoration Society and AIA Cleveland.
