Plainfield, IN –As part of their Indiana Bicentennial project, the Plainfield Rotary, in collaboration with all six Hendricks County libraries, the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce, Plainfield Community Schools, and the arcDesign architectural firm, has selected the ten most beautiful courthouses in Indiana. The project commemorates the history and legacy of all of Indiana’s county courthouses. The Rotary Club will present the ten most beautiful courthouses in the state with awards on November 30, 2016, from 3-5 p.m. at the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library located at 1120 Stafford Road in Plainfield.
“Indiana’s county courthouses serve as local symbols of our nation’s founding principle that government should be of laws rather than of men,” says Max Hank of the Plainfield Rotary Club. “They have served as magnets of commerce in every county. In Indiana they also serve as the repositories of life’s most precious records. Many of these buildings are magnificent works of art in their own right.”
Representatives of each county as well as members of the public are invited to attend the celebration. The official announcements and presentations to the winning counties will be made at that time.
