MANTORVILLE, Minn. – Friday marks what’s known as Constitution Day and for a local courthouse that means the public gets to see inside.
The Dodge County Courthouse, which is actually the oldest active courthouse in the state, recently finished remodeling. On Friday, members of the community and Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Justice Barry Anderson, rededicated the space as part of Constitution Day. That’s a federal day in which people think on their rights and freedoms given to them through the signing of the Constitution. Those with the county tell us this newly revamped courthouse will help them better serve the community.
Also as part of the event, people could also get a tour of the new Government Services Building which used to be a school.
