Putnam County Board Chairman Duane Calbow welcomed the large crowd in attendance. "Thanks for coming to one of the oldest Courthouses, and, I believe the most beautiful anywhere in the State of Illinois only because of the great people of Putnam County who contributed and worked hard to keep this courthouse the way it is. I know there are a lot of people who come here to the Courthouse and leave with awe."
