HIBBING, MN -

The Ten Commandments plaque in the Hibbing courthouse has been removed.

The plaque, which had been on display since the 1950's, was taken down on Monday.

St. Louis County officials say they received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation last month, and determined the plaque should be removed from public display. 

The County Attorney's Office says they researched relevant federal Supreme Court Decisions on the topic, which led to the decision to remove the plaque.
