Harnett County Courthouse to Stay Downtown

Posted November 27, 1997

— In Harnett County, constituents stood up to their commissioners, and this morning they're thankful they got what they wanted.

Wednesday, a Superior Court judge ruled that an old law requiring the courthouse to remain downtown still stands, ending debate over whether to build the new building.
