The courthouse may go back to its original slate roof, if possible funding comes through. From 1906 to 1971, the courthouse had a black slate roof. It was removed and asphalt shingles laid down. However, the roof must now be replaced because the shingles are breaking down. Heritage trust funds could be used to make up the difference in price between asphalt and slate if an application for funds is approved.
