Courthouse Porch Gets New Surface
Citizens who slipped or trod unevenly on the worn cement porch in front of the courthouse will not experience that difficulty after today. County Supervisor Henry E. Wofford yesterday afternoon started a crew of workmen on the task of drilling out the worn cement and reflooring that section of the porch leading in parallel lines from the front door to the steps.
In measuring the worn area as a preliminary to their task, workmen found that the top step, which in reality is part of the porch, had been worn down almost two inches by the countless steps of thousands of citizens since the present courthouse was built.
