"We've lost a very wise and humble servant," said Emmet L. Cosgrove, chief administrative judge for the judicial district.
Emmet L. Cosgrove, administrative judge for the New London Judicial District, invited members of the New London Fire Department to the ceremony and thanked them "for saving this beautiful building.
The building has served many purposes in the past two centuries, including as a makeshift hospital during a yellow fever outbreak in 1798 and as a church meeting house, according to Cosgrove. Revolutionary War Gen. Marquis de Lafayette and statesman Daniel Webster spoke at the courthouse and in 1860, publisher Horace Greeley campaigned there on behalf of Abraham Lincoln's Republic ticket, according to Cosgrove. "For all of these fascinating events, this has always been primarily a courthouse," Cosgrove said. The room known as "Courtroom 1" and the court's library were added on to the back of the courthouse in 1910, according to Cosgrove. The newer section of the courthouse, attached to the 1784 building via a catwalk, was constructed in 1982. At the end of the ceremony, Cosgrove encouraged the assembly to leave by the original front door that overlooks State Street, walking out "as the people of New London County did in the 1800s," and imagining the changes the building would see during the next century.
Emmet L. Cosgrove, administrative judge for the judicial district, said the courthouses are equipped with generators but they are not sufficient to open the buildings to the public.
The panel consisted of Judges Linda K. Lager, Emmet L. Cosgrove and Jonathan E. Silbert.
