LINDEN — The results of almost $5 million in renovations will be unveiled Saturday afternoon during the rededication of the historical Cass County Courthouse on the square in Linden.

Built in 1860-61, the oldest Texas courthouse in continuous operation has undergone several incarnations. A $4.1 million grant from the Texas Historical Commission and more than $700,000 raised through the nonprofit Cass County Conservancy allowed the courthouse to be restored to its 1934 appearance.

L.M. Jester of Atlanta, president of the conservancy, said this week he hopes everyone will come out for Saturday’s ceremony, set to begin at 1 p.m. Afterward, tours will be conducted throughout the building until 4 p.m.
