Update on the Cupola Restoration Project

After two full weeks, the restoration of the Old Tolland County Court House cupola and bell tower this week continues, with strikingly different images.

In the first, new copper is being returned to the wooden cupola dome, over a protective layer to keep out rain, snow and ice, as seen in the second photo.

However, the discovery of significant rot in the main center post of the cupola, previously hidden by the bell tower ceiling, is a setback. Ironically, the view of the dome without the louvres is original to the 1822 building.
