Extensive brick and mortar repair on the Caledonia County Courthouse is winding down

ST. JOHNSBURY — Extensive brick and mortar repair on the Caledonia County Courthouse is winding down with completion expected by the end of the month. Masons from Alpine Restoration, of Waterbury, began addressing significant exterior needs at the 165-year-old Main Street building in May. The project’s general contractor is EF Wall & Associates Inc, of Barre. The focus of the project was to repair a band of decorative brickwork that was deteriorating to the point that bricks were falling. It’s a project that’s been on the State of Vermont’s to-do list since September 2020. An inspection at the time revealed the entire band of bricks was weakened and additional bricks were likely to fall. An orange vinyl fence was stretched along the front and sides of the building to keep people from getting too close where they would be in danger of falling bricks.
