The Douglas County Courthouse had the finials removed some time ago because of their deteriorating condition and I understand a stone mason was engaged to carve new ones. I'm curious about the progress on getting the new finials carved and when they might be installed.

Bill Bell, director of maintenance for Douglas County, said the finials were removed because they were deteriorating and splitting. He said replacing them was in the restoration plan for the courthouse, but it is unknown at this time when that will happen.
