Beauregard Parish Courthouse Newly Renovated
11/2/2017 4:07:54 PM

The long-awaited renovations to the Beauregard Historical Courthouse have been completed. The 36th Judicial District Court resumed business in the courthouse on September 5 and the Official Opening of Court Ceremony was held on October 27. An Open House is scheduled for November 9 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Designed by architect Paule Lemaire and constructed by Pat Williams Construction, the renovated courthouse gloriously combines new, modern facilities, including elevators and state-of-the-art technology, with the original architectural beauty from over a century ago. The original stained-glass dome once again towers majestically over the main courtroom, and the mural and crest were painstakingly restored to their former beauty by Elise Grenier. Although the renovations took longer than expected, the project was completed under budget and includes additional space in anticipation of future growth.

This project could not have been completed without the support of the citizens of Beauregard Parish, Judges Martha Ann O’Neal, C. Kerry Anderson, Clerk of Court Brian S. Lestage, retired District Attorney David W. Burton, the Police Jury, the current Parish Administrator Bryan McReynolds, the former Parish Administrator Bobby Hennigan, and those who served on the Citizens Committee, including the chair Leon Lagneaux and former Superintendent of Schools Myrna Loy Cooley, who served as the committee’s secretary.
