Re-roofing the courthouse
Workers with G.L. Capasso Inc. structural reconstruction contractors out of North Haven, re-roof, and re-point mortar on the Connecticut Superior Court Geographical Area 10 (GA 10) courthouse on Broad Street in New London on Monday.
The $1.09 million project started in November while the courthouse has been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. GA 10 business has been conducted at the Judicial District Courthouse at 70 Huntington St. during the closure.
Built in 1891, the Romanesque-style building housed the Williams Memorial Institute, an all-girls high school, until 1954, when the school moved to the Connecticut College campus.
The state leased the building for 25 years beginning in 1972 and purchased it in 1997.
