This was our forty-fifth Courthouse in Texas to visit. That means we are at 17.7% of our goal with 82.3% left to go.

Built in 1884 by architect, Wilson & Tozer in the Italianate style using mostly brick and sandstone.

Before the alterations to the roof, the building strongly resembled the 1885 Red River County courthouse in Clarksville, TX designed by architect William H. Wilson.

The dome on the Clay County courthouse was placed on the roof years after its construction, replacing the original clock tower. Gabled roofs were also added to each wing.
