Statue, plaza planned for Stark County Courthouse
Planning is underway for a $155,000 project to mark the spot where Theodore Roosevelt gave one of his first public speeches -- the Stark County Courthouse grounds, said Kevin Thompson, Dickinson State University Alumni and Foundation CEO.
A 7-foot-tall, $78,000 bronze statue of a 24-year-old Roosevelt will be erected in the courthouse lawn this fall, Thompson said.
