This was our forty-first Courthouse in Texas to visit. That means we are at 16.1% of our goal with 83.9% left to go.
Built in 1900 at a cost $62,000. It is the third on this site. (Little Virginia, 1851; brick Gothic, 1889, burned in 1899.) This one of granite, brick, and marble. Capitol-styled, classic Roman architecture, with a dome clock and belfry surmounted by a symbolic figure of justice. In 1964 became site of Harrison County Museum, in space allotment after a new Courthouse was opened on Whetstone Square.
