Access to justice for all and the symbolism of this beautiful courtroom are important to all of us .

......   This is a significant step in the fundraising project being led by a Blue - Ribbon panel which includes Kenosha County Executive Samantha Kerkman .
   “We are actively seeking private funds to support this preservation effort , and we are so very grateful to Habush Habush & Rottier for its generous contribution , ” Kerkman said . “Our Courthouse is a historic gem . Restoring the grand Ceremonial Courtroom to its onetime splendor would be a fitting way to celebrate the centennial of the building in 2025 , and it would provide a wonderful space for the community to gather for all sorts of significant occasions . ”
   Proposed restoration of the Courtroom , which was built in 1925 , will help restore its former grandeur . It will also allow the Courtroom to be used for historical and architectural tours , educational activities for children and community events .
   Concealed above a drop ceiling that was installed in the 1960s is a beautiful border with a goldleaf quote by Abraham Lincoln that lines the room: “Let every American , every lover of liberty , every well - wisher to his posterity , swear by the blood of the Revolution , never to violate in the least particular , the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others . ” The proposed restoration would bring that quotation back into public view , along with highly detailed ornamental plaster and a stained - glass skylight that was original to the building .
   Retired Judge Mary Wagner , co - chair of the Blue Ribbon Committee , expressed appreciation for the new contribution from Habush Habush & Rottier .
   “The recognition of Habush Habush & Rottier of our efforts is a stunning example of the community’s support for this project of regional interest , ” Wagner said . “The $100 , 000 contribution from their charitable funds represents their commitment to this community . Their generous donation will advance our efforts to revive this magnificent structure , as we continue working to raise the funds necessary to complete the restoration . ”
