County to host cannon dedication

Washington County will host a cannon dedication ceremony on July 4 at the Historic Courthouse in Stillwater from 10 to 11:15 a.m.

The $33,000 cannon, which was acquired through a local community group that raised money for its purchase, will be installed on the site to replace the original Howitzer cannon, first installed at the courthouse in 1902. The cannon was later turned into scrap metal before World War I.

The event will include the unveiling and dedication of the cannon, along with music and refreshments.

The public is invited to attend.
