Historic Centreville Courthouse Will Maintain Original Brick Appearance

 

CENTREVILLE - The Commission evaluating the use and condition of the Historic  Centreville Courthouse, established by the Queen Anne's County Commissioners, is pleased to announce that it shares public opinion in maintaining the original brick appearance.

 

For the last 100 years, the building has been either painted or surfaced with lime wash which colored it white. As this was removed in order to repair and recolor it, everyone was pleased to see a more attractive look appearing from under multiple coats of paint.

 

It also became evident that extensive repairs of the exterior woodwork needed to take place. The County is arranging for that now.

 

Meanwhile, since the removal of the paint has been more extensive on some sides of the building than others, the County is now working with experts in historic restoration to recapture a balanced look which may require removal of some additional paint or lime wash.

 

The County Government is pleased with the current look of the building and with citizen involvement which shows appreciation of our history. Current plans for the building involve Court activity on the first floor, keeping it the second oldest Courthouse in continuous operation in the United States. It was built during the Presidency of George Washington.
