Share Lee County Courthouse memories as part of celebration

By Staff | May 18, 2015

The historic Lee County Courthouse will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its opening in December and planning is under way for a special reception in honor of the occasion.

However, the courthouse wasn’t built in a day the cornerstone was placed in April 1915 and one day isn’t enough to recognize how important the building has been for generations of Lee County residents.

That’s why residents are invited to submit their own memories of courthouse for inclusion in the celebration. Whether attending a speech or an auction on the courthouse steps, or watching Sean Connery film scenes for “Just Cause,” those memories deserve to be shared.

Submit memories in 300 words or less to Communications Specialist Tim Engstrom at tengstrom@leegov.com or mail to him at 2115 Second St., Fourth Floor, Fort Myers, FL 33901.

Submissions, which become the property of Lee County, may be posted online or used as part of the anniversary.
