Frio County Courthouse, Texas

see historic Frio County Jail

County Seat – Pearsall

Built – 1904

Style – non-descript, originally it was built with Romanesque detail

Architect – H T Phelps(original)

Photos taken – January 29, 2006

Impressions – Well, who knows what the original looked like.  This rendition isn’t exactly what you would expect of a turn-of -the-century courthouse.  It was remodeled in 1937 and 1950.  I don’t know of any plans to remodel the courthouse.

We visited the courthouse on a winter’s day-trip out of San Antonio.  A Sunday drive – so we weren’t able to get inside.  Of more interest than the courthouse is the nearby original jailhouse.
