“Designed by David S. Castle of the architectural firm Townes, Lightfoot and Funk, Hansford County courthouse is the first and only courthouse ever built in the county seat of Spearman.
When the courthouse was built, the top floor housed a spacious sheriff’s quarters and a dormitory for sequestered juries. The dormitory is now the commissioner’s courtroom and the sheriff has since vacated, but the rooms still retain much of their original appearance.” – Terry Jeanson, March, 2008
