NATIONAL ROAD OFFERS COURTHOUSE SPOT ON TOUR

 

At the most recent Bond County Board Meeting, John Goldsmith was on hand to offer a contract to the board from the National Road Association.  The contract was to offer the Bond County Courthouse along with the Sprite Statue to be part of a National Art and Architecture Tour. The tour is currently being put together with 14 contracts offered in Bond County. The tour will include bridges, historic homes, post offices, statues and possibly the Bond County Courthouse.  The contract states the potential art or architecture will be included for 15 years, it permits photos to be published for advertising purposes, and states a plaque will be provided to participants by the National Road. Goldsmith had an example of the impressive plaque at the meeting.  There will be no cost to the County. A possible reception for all participants is in the works, and States Attorney Chris Bauer will review the contract for approval.
