The south Alabama courthouse linked to Harper Lee’s recent „To Abolish a Mockingbird“ is receiving a preservation grant.
The program Partners in Preservation says the aged Monroe County Courthouse in Monroeville is receiving $125,000 to restore serious structural complications in a wall.
Recipients own been announced following an online vote.
The 115-365 days-aged aged courthouse is now a museum that tells the legend of Lee and fellow author Truman Capote, who own been each and each from Monroeville.
Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book extinct the crimson-brick courthouse as the model for a pivotal trial scene in her legend of racial injustice. The 2-legend court modified into once then recreated as a Hollywood place for the 1962 movie primarily based on Lee’s recent.
