OREGON SHERIFF Magazine News
Spring, 2017 – Sherman County is pleased to announce that we will be breaking ground on a new addition to our existing courthouse.
Our existing courthouse was built in 1898 and has received minimal upgrades throughout its lifespan. The historic building has become more crowded as the needs of the county have grown, and still houses almost all county functions including the Sheriff’s Office. Over the years we have adapted to fit through creative use of spaces with storage closets as evidence lockers and former holding cells as office space.
The new building will include a sheriff’s office suite with ample room for deputies, evidence storage and processing, conference rooms and equipment storage. This suite will be convenient to new modern courtrooms and hearings rooms featuring current security and safety provisions. Along with the new addition, the original courthouse will be renovated, and the two buildings will be linked in order to provide all county services within the same facility.
One notable feature planned for the building is the restoration of the cupola on top of the historic courthouse. The original cupola was removed from the building sometime in the 1960’s due to structural problems and will be replaced as part of the project, making the original courthouse even more of a landmark in our county.
Thank you to all the many people who have had a hand in getting the project this far. It is not very often that Sherman County has an opportunity to undertake a capital project of this nature and we are looking forward to seeing our concepts and ideas take physical form over the next several months.
