Cook County courthouse turning 100
At the March 13 county board meeting, Commissioner Jim
Johnson said Cook County Historical Society Museum Director Carrie
McHugh asked him if the county wanted to celebrate the 100th
anniversary of the courthouse building. “Love it,” Commissioner
Sue Hakes said of the idea.
“I’m for it,” said Commissioner Jan Hall.
By consensus, the board supported the Historical Society’s offer to
help plan a celebration.
