LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – The public got a chance to see the newly remodeled historic courthouse in downtown Lexington on Sunday.

People were able to take tours of the building.

The official ribbon cutting was held last Tuesday and Mayor Jim Gray praised the work that went into the 30-million dollar update of the courthouse.

The courthouse was built in 1899.

The newly renovated facility now houses the visitor’s center offices and event space along with some restaurants.

The top floor is designed to host weddings and parties.
