Chenango Courthouse celebrates 175th anniversary

NORWICH – Chenango County Court Judge W. Howard Sullivan calls it the “jewel of Chenango County,” while one-time Evening Sun editor Joe Quinn once wrote that it “symbolizes the past and is the link connecting current and future generations to their place in history, their rich heritage.”



On Saturday, that jewel is expected to shine brightly as the Chenango County Courthouse ­– built in 1837 – celebrates 175 years.

To commemorate the event, lawmakers, judicial representatives and the community as a whole will gather at noon Saturday on the courthouse steps for a special ceremony, followed by tours of the historic building. Gary Brookins, as Master of Ceremonies, will welcome those attending to open the gathering, which will be held at the Chenango County Council of the Arts, 27 West Main St., in the event of rain.
