The plaque had been embedded into the wall since the building opened 70 years ago.

A county spokesperson says the Freedom from Religion Foundation sent a letter to the county last month raising concerns about the plaque. Based on the history of court rulings in similar cases, county administration decided to remove the plaque after consulting with the county attorney's office.

The plaque was removed Monday.
