Clarksville-Montgomery County Courthouse
Historic Restoration 
Clarksville, TN

On January 20, 1999, an F4 class tornado destroyed or damaged many significant buildings in Clarksville, Tennessee, among them, the historic courthouse located in the heart of the historic center city. Damage to the building included the complete loss of the 62-foot tall, metal clad bell tower. The east portico and significant portions of the wall area above were destroyed. Of the four corner spires, only two remained, and they required replacement. The courthouse was constructed in 1879 after the downtown fire of 1878. The building is an impressive edifice of the Victorian Second Empire style and was a prominent feature of the city’s skyline and heritage of the community.

ICT provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and construction administration services for this historic restoration.
