Register staff report

RICHMOND — The Madison County Historical Society has called a public meeting for Jan. 22 to show support for preservation of two historic buildings owned by county government.

In addition to discussing restoration of the Miller Building and the Old Creamry, both at the in intersection of First and Irvine streets, the meeting will discuss ways to repurposing them, according to Jackie Couture of the historical society.

“It is our hope that we can get a large enough turnout to convince fiscal court that the community opposes the demolition of the buildings,” she said.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22, in the community room of Central Bank, 305 W. Main St., Richmond.
