Courthouse Tours A Part of Saturday’s Christmas in the Valley Event On Saturday

(Ironton) Christmas in the Valley takes place Saturday on the Iron County Courthouse Square in Ironton.

While at the celebration, you will have the opportunity to take a tour to see and hear about the lengthy courthouse restoration project which is now complete.

The structure was first built in 1860, surviving through the entire Civil War, including a major battle where the courthouse was actually struck by cannon fire which you can still see today.

Presiding Commissioner Jim Scaggs invites you to stop by on Saturday to see some of the many improvements.

Part of the courthouse restoration was paid for by a 500-thousand dollar grant the County received from the Iron County Economic Partnership.

Scaggs describes some of the courthouse work you will see during the tour.

Besides the courthouse tours, Christmas in the Valley will get underway in the early afternoon on Saturday and will include a live nativity, craft and food booths, Christmas carolers, live music and more.

Christmas in the Valley will wrap up with a parade which is set to start Saturday night at 6, followed by pictures with Santa at the Iron County Courthouse gazebo.
