Georgetown Dedicates Historic Buildings After Renovation

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- After two years of renovation work, the Town Hall and Administrative Offices building in Georgetown are complete.

The buildings were dedicated Thursday in a public ceremony. For many years, the town wanted to refurbish Town Hall and increase office space. They purchased the buildings and began a $1.9 million project after voters approved a referendum. 

The town hall was a gift to Georgetown from the Wilmington Trust company in 1965 and the administrative offices building used to be the second fire station.

The town manager said they wanted to maintain as much of the historic architecture as possible. The people of Georgetown were happy that they the kept the town's history alive in the newly renovated buildings. 

Dennis Winzenried said, "It's absolutely gorgeous, and I just love seeing the older buildings saved. We lost too much of our history and to see it renovated and put to good use again. It's fantastic."

Mayor William West, who has lived in Georgetown all his life, was proud of the completed project.

"To put a smile on people's faces and to see them happy about things we have done in this community brings joy to me," he said.

Residents say the buildings are a beautiful addition to the circle in Georgetown.
