Gazebo roof could see new location in Steelville

Organizers for restoring the gazebo to the Crawford County Courthouse lawn in Steelville approached the city council on Monday night to ask about the possibility of putting the old gazebo roof onto a structure on city-owned property instead of county property. The Crawford County Commission voted last month not to move forward with the rebuilding project at the courthouse, leaving those who have worked on the plan with the roof from the old bandstand but nothing to put it on. The roof has been sitting on a parked trailer on the old city hall property by Yadkin Creek.
