This was our one hundred-thirty-first Courthouse in Texas to visit. That means we are at 51.6% of our goal with 48.4% left to go.
Architect – Elmer George Withers Style – Texas Renaissance Material – Red brick and sandstone Remodeled – 1962
The building standing today is a severe remodeling of the 1909 building. The 1962 remodeling removed the dome and turrets and encased the red brick and sandstone courthouse under a lighter brick veneer.
“The old courthouse was severely damaged in a fire and HAD to be rebuilt. No one here likes the new style, but something had to be done–it wasn’t destroyed arbitrarily.” – Joe Weaver, Director Tulia Chamber of Commerce
