Paxton IL – 18 months after being named
one of the State's 10 most endangered historic places, the oldest building in
Paxton could be torn down.
The 141 year old former jail and sheriff's residence, sits
on Courthouse Square
in the small Ford
County town. Last week
the county board made plans to tear down the historic complex in the spring.
The building could stay open if a non-profit group will
commit to restoring the building.
