BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The renovated Boone County Historic Courthouse will be renamed next week to honor a former judge-executive.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports the building in Burlington will be named the Ferguson Community Center at the Boone County Historic Courthouse in honor of Bruce Ferguson. A ceremony is scheduled for April 10.

Ferguson, who died in 2015, served as judge-executive for 24 years, from 1964-1982 and from 1986 to 1992. He oversaw changes that transformed the county from a rural, farming community into a suburban community and center of industry.
