Mural: cornerstone layingGov. Theodore Roosevelt laying the corner-stone of the Nassau Co. Court-house, July 13th, 1900.
Nassau County’s Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building houses a set of four murals created as a New Deal project. They are located above the staircases, at the second floor of the building’s rotunda. Created by Robert Gaston Herbert, these Federal Art Project-funded murals depict “important events in Nassau County’s history,” and were restored in 2007.
