JACKSON, Wyoming — Teton County has completed the purchase of the Clifford P. Hansen Memorial Courthouse from the federal government.
The deal cost $600,000 for the building and $10 for the land in Jackson.
The sale returns property to the county that was given to the federal government in the 1980s.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1FQgSi3 ) the agreement mandates that the courthouse continue to be used as a public building.
County commissioners completed the deal last week, ending a process that took more than a year and required congressional action.
For the near future, county officials expect the courthouse will continue to house Jackson's municipal court, along with federal court proceedings once a month.
