Stone County plans to renovate the historic courthouse in Wiggins.
The two million dollar project includes upgrading the existing facility and building an addition.
A two hundred thousand dollar grant from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History will help pay for the project.
The building was dedicated in 1917 and was recently designated a Mississippi Landmark Courthouse.
Supervisors may issue bonds to fund a portion of the project.
"This is our, kind of our heart and soul of the county, and we want to try and make it very nice. It's just outdated. It was built in 1916. The wiring is not sufficient for all the computers now and our growth we're having," explained Chancery Clerk, Gerald Bond.
Renovation work on the Stone County courthouse is expected to begin this fall.
Supervisors say the expected bond issue will not require any tax increase.
