This same courthouse was enlarged and remodeled beyond recognition in 1940. The old
Victorian facade was metamorphosed into one of Grecian temple aspect complete with massive
columns and a portico. This addition was dedicated October 29, 1940 with impressive cere-
mony. The architects were Upman and Adams of Washington, D. C.; the builder, the Joseph
Light Construction Company of the same city. The cost was $177,900.

Another enlargement was required less than a decade later. A new addition costing
$277,840 was begun in 1947, and completed early in 1949.35 The architect was Paul H. Kea of
Hyattsville; the contractor, Lee T. Turner of Washington.

At this writing, a third addition, to cost approximately $1,750,000, is under construction.
The architects are John M. Walton and Dennis W. Madden of Mt. Rainier and the builder,
