Jackson Returns

By  | 

A memorial for one of Wood County’s longtime judges that has been out of commission for several months now is set to take its rightful place.

The statue of Judge James Monroe Jackson, Jr. is being returned after repair work done earlier this year in Oberlin, Ohio.

The restoration work cost Wood County $3,000, but that price was a lot less than originally estimated.

"They got it up there, and found out it was actually in good shape for being over 100 years old," says Jim Miracle of the Wood County Historic Landmarks Commission. "They were surprised it had done that well."

The rededication of the statue is set for 10:30 Saturday morning by the fountain in front of the Wood County Courthouse.
