The High Plains

Well, we finally took a chunk out of the remaining courthouses.  We were able to take in 21 counties around Lubbock – the High Plains.  That still leaves about 35 courthouses located in the other part  of the Panhandle (around Amarillo) and West to Far West Texas.  This trip was somewhat unusual.  It reminds me of why … Continue reading »

San Angelo Area Trip

Nice short trip to the San Angelo and area.  I’ve chosen the featured photo above quite carefully.  In one photo, you see cotton fields, oil pumps and wind farms.  The photo was taken in southern Glasscock.  But it certainly represents the areas’ economic strengths – its’ past, present and future. The Tom Green Courthouse is … Continue reading »

Colorado County Courthouse – Revisited

This was a great courthouse before Restoration.  Now that it’s been restored – it’s magnificent.  The stucco was removed from the exterior.  The doom was updated – back to its copper finish.  The interior is now all original – with wooden floors, correct colors – all very well done.  Not a lot done in the … Continue reading »
