Our New Home

In January, 2014 Laclede County Title purchased a building to house our offices.  Known locally as the Barton Building, our new home is located directly across the street from the front doors of the Laclede County Courthouse.  Built in 1914, this historic building has many of its original features.  Unfortunately, most of these features are hidden under paneling, dropped ceilings, and layers of dust.  Renovations began in February to restore this beautiful building to its original state.  Stay tuned to this space for updates and many before, during, and after pictures.

 

IN THE BEGINNING

We were able to dig up an old picture of the building, before the most recent changes were made.  Our goal is to restore it to this condition.

CONDITION AT TIME OF PURCHASE

These photos were taken shortly after the purchase of the building.  Notice the original windows, fixtures, and woodwork.  These are our inspiration for the renovation and restoration.
