A public open house will be held on Friday December 7, 2012 between 3 and 7 PM to celebrate the completion of the Bailey Building in Huntingdon. No registration is required for this public event. The event will feature building tours, displays and refreshments. All offices will be open for public inspection.
The Bailey Building now houses offices of the County Commissioners and County Treasurer as well as District Magisterial Judge Richard Wilt. Mapping and Tax Assessment offices are also housed in the building.
The Bailey Building was once the home of Judge Thomas Fisher Bailey and was built in 1916. It became the Elks Lodge in the 1950’s, becoming the site of many proms, banquets and wedding receptions over the next fifty years. The County Commissioners have been careful to retain various historic features of the building such as wood work, French doors, fireplace and the ballroom.
The After Hours and Open House are supported by several businesses who have contributed to the completion of the project, C.E. Wood Construction, Keller Engineers, Kasun Architects, D.C. Goodman and Sons and Southern Contractors.
