New granite signs engraved with the national motto “In God We Trust” are scheduled to be installed on the Anderson County Courthouse in Clinton this afternoon.
The Anderson County Commission approved the signs this spring after hours of discussion and five meetings.
They will be installed above the four courthouse doors starting at about 1:30 p.m. today, the Anderson County Mayor’s Office said in a media advisory. The work will be done by employees from Island Home Granite and Signs.
Each sign could take 1.5 hours to install, and the work could be complete by about 7:30 p.m., the Mayor’s Office said.
A public unveiling ceremony is planned for 10 a.m. Tuesday. That ceremony is being conducted by the “In God We Trust” citizens’ committee and not the county.
The signs were paid for with $4,812 in donations collected by the “In God We Trust” citizens’ committee.
The Anderson County Courthouse is at 100 N. Main St. in Clinton.
