Curry County, Oregon is requesting proposals for an architect or related firm to prepare a feasibility study to design and build a new courthouse. The current courthouse was built in 1956 and is 16,100 square feet. Adjacent to the courthouse is a 20,000 square foot Sheriff’s Office and 35 bed jail. Due to space constraints, the administrative offices are in a separate building; a 17,100 square foot parking garage converted to office space. Veteran services are provided off-site in a different city than where the current courthouse is located.
The County wishes to build a new courthouse (government services building). The new courthouse needs to house all County government offices, including the Sheriff’s Office and jail, and required state offices.
The new courthouse could either be built on the existing site, across the road, or on a new site yet to be determined. The current courthouse is in the tsunami inundation zone. Click here for the RFP

In the February 5, 2020 Board of Commissioners meeting the Board adopted a resolution declaring Agness a ‘Medal of Honor Community’. The recipient who received the Medal of Honor though wasn’t present—it was Nathan Huntley Edgerton, an officer in the Civil War.
Edgerton was originally from Ohio, but after serving in the war, he came to Agness where he ran a farm and was later laid to rest at the age of 93. He won his prestigious award in 1898. Lieutenant Edgerton was a white infantry officer serving the United States Colored Troops. In 1864 his regiment was attacked and one Union flag bearer was shot down, then a second, then a third. Edgerton, wounded, lifted the flag up and advanced his regiment until the opponent retreated. Click here for Press Release.
