FANNIN COUNTY, TX - Restoring the county courthouse is a top priority for Fannin County Commissioners. It was also the top item on their agenda.

Commissioners applied for a grant from the Texas Historical Commission and were awarded $400,000 dollars. That money will go toward the first phase of the restoration.

Overall, the entire project is expected to cost around $14,000 Million. Barbara McCutcheon, the Steering Committee Chair says, "We feel we can raise this money through other grants. There are possibilities out there. We're not going to give up. We want our courthouse restored to its 1888 grandeur. We're going to do our best."

Commissioners say they plan to take a countywide poll in the next few months, to see if citizens are in favor of the project.
