Keith Middlemas courthouse stone carver

Stone carver Keith Middlemas, Oskaloosa, is sculpting four new finials that will replace deteriorating ones on the clock tower at the Douglas County Courthouse. The project is part of a multi-year courthouse restoration effort on the 103-year-old building that began in late 2007. Lawrence artist Laura Ramberg is also working on stone pieces for the courthouse.

A 103-year-old sculpted block of limestone from the Douglas County Courthouse shows signs of deterioration. The piece is being replaced by a new sculpted piece by stone carver Laura Ramberg at her rural Lawrence shop. Ramberg is completing three pieces for the Douglas County Courthouse, part of a multi-year restoration project to the 103-year-old building. Ramberg and Oskaloosa stone carver Keith Middlemas are both sculpting new pieces to replace deteriorated stone sections.
