Today, Knox County Clerk Sherry Witt officially opened an Inspiration Room in the Old Knox County Courthouse. In addition, the room has been dedicated to the memory of Former Knox County Commissioner Mary Lou Horner.
Horner was notorious for always helping to facilitate aka perform marriage ceremonies around the courthouse. Clerk Witt says that between 40-50 marriages are conducted every week in the old Courthouse so it seemed appropriate to dedicate the room on Valentines Day.
The room is decorated with art supplied by local artists. The three pieces in the room today are creations by Bruce McCamish and Rebecca Muth.
Immediately after the dedication, Commissioner Larsen Jay performed a marriage.
