Courthouse illuminated as Wicomico marks 150

Just before 8 p.m. this evening, as part of the 3rd Friday festivities in Downtown Salisbury and the celebration of Wicomico County’s 150th anniversary, the County Courthouse was officially illuminated from the ground skyward.
Three sides of the courthouse will be lit every night, the north, front and south. The lights are white, giving the 1848 structure a creamy brown appearance, with the just-renovated clock tower trimmed in red.

The project cost $30,000 and is being paid for by grants from the Richard A. Henson Foundation and the Greater Salisbury Committee Foundation.

The county provided in-kind donations; the work was completed by Bryan LeCompte and Robert Parker of Yard Designs in Salisbury.
