Jackson Co Courthouse centennial to be celebrated

(KNZA)--The 100th anniversary of the construction of the Jackson County Courthouse will be celebrated during the Falls Fest Saturday in Holton.

The Jackson County Commission will host a special ribbon-cutting cermony on the east side of the Courthouse at 10:00 that morning. Free cake will be provided to note the anniversary.  

Guided tours of the Courthouse will be offered at 9 and 11 in the morning and 1:00 in the afternoon.  Those interested in participating in the tours are asked to meet inside on the first floor of the Courthouse.  

The current Courthouse first opened to the public on July 4, 1921.  

The current Courthouse, located on the Holton Square, is the third Courthouse in the county's history.  It was constructed at a cost of nearly $264,000.  

The Fall Fest, sponsored by the Holton/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, will kick off Saturday morning at 9:00.  It will feature vendors, a chili cook-off, scarecrow contest, music, shopping, blacksmith demonstrations and more.
