ALBION – The courthouse dome had a purple tint last night facing Main Street to highlight Domestic Violence Awareness Month during October.

The county’s domestic violence unit responds to about 400 referrals each year.

The other side of the dome is lighted pink this month to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month, also during October.

About 70 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Orleans County.

The courthouse, which was built in 1858, is the focal point of the Courthouse Square, a district on the National Register of Historic Places.
