WAYNESBORO, Va -- The Augusta County courthouse is more than 100 years old and many say the building is no longer functional.
Estimates from a study show that it would cost more than $9 million to renovate the current building and around $11 million to build a new one.
People who work there say the building has outlived its use and could use central air conditioning.
"100 years from now, I hope this courthouse is still standing in some form or fashion, whether as a working courthouse or as a museum some day, regardless something needs to be done to maintain it," says Carol Brydge, who works at the courthouse, "if no improvements are made, certainly it will fail."
A final decision has not been made on what to do with the building.
