1908 Courthouse to improve accessibility

-A A +A

After threatened legal action forced the relocation of events, the courthouse foundation is working to improve access for the disabled.

By Patrick Smith

INDEPENDENCE — The University of North Carolina School of the Arts was set to hold its second concert of a winter concert series this month at the Historic 1908 Courthouse in Independence until handicapped accessibility issues with the building were brought to light by an activist for the disabled.
The regional arts council has now moved the concert and all other upcoming events scheduled at the 105-year-old courthouse’s Baldwin Auditorium to new venues, and the courthouse foundation is preparing to address Americans with Disabilities Act compliance issues.
