ALBANY, GA (WALB) –It was an exciting day in Crisp county folks from all over turned up to celebrate the dedication of the new courthouse.

This 10 million dollar project was paid for with sales tax money and it has been in the works for more than two years.

Officials say the 35,000 square foot building is a huge upgrade from the old courthouse..going from just one courtroom to three.

The new building will be home to the district attorney, all the judges, magistrate, probate, judicial and clerk of courts.

"We hope this facility provides usefulness for our community for over a hundred years before we have to do something of this magnitude again," said James Nance, chairman.

The old courthouse is now the crisp county government center and officials say it will undergo some renovations and several positions such as the tax assessor will remain there.
