A restoration effort taking place in historic downtown McMinnville was spotlighted by Main Street McMinnville’s Design Committee recently. Some local legal eagles are rejuvenating a building on Court Square.“It is always rewarding to witness a historic building being saved, but it is especially exciting to see the type of restoration that has been done here,” said Rachel Killebrew, Design Committee chairperson. “There is truly not one thing I would change about this renovation.”Attorney Tim Pirtle and his wife, attorney Mary Little, leased and renovated 112 S. Court Square, which is now Pirtle & Little Law offices.The couple wanted to restore, not simply remodel, the property.“We didn’t want to change the original footprint of the building, but rather study the history and ensure you feel that in the finished product,” said Pirtle.The building is listed as 80 years old with the front facade having stone markings reading “Walling Block Rebuilt 1932.”
