I had a chance to stop at the Colorado CH, so I took it. I knew that it had been renovated. I thought that was strange since it had seemed so authenic from our first visit. But honestly – it was the courtroom and the stunning stained glass ceiling that I most remembered. so I wasn’t sure what I would be seeing.
Well – the dome was redone to its’ copper days. Originally, it was silver, then copper. The stucco was removed from the exterior – leaving it a golden brick. The painting was all updated. Inside – carpet was removed and the original wooden floors were restored. Colors were brought back into the original scheme.
I wasn’t able to get into the courtroom – it was locked. Honestly – why would you take so much pride in your courthouse – and then lock up its crowing jewel. Oh well, I’ve been in before and they did have a window open up on the third floor. Really seem to have changed much – it was still a wonderful courtroom with a stunning stained-glass ceiling.
