Built – 1939
Style – Moderne/art deco
Architect – Blum Hester
Pictures Taken – March 27, 2004
Impressions: I capture this courthouse on a visit to our friends – Mary & Mike, in Palestine, Texas. We may have to go back some day, as Clem wasn’t with me – so he hasn’t seen this courthouse as of yet. It’s a rather plain moderne style. But still, the art deco highlights do add interest and gives the building a good 1930’s/WPA feel about it. Fairly certain the WPA helped construct the courthouse, as it did in counties all across the country. Update: We drove through Crockett returning from a trip to Margaritaville in Shreveport. We stopped so that Clem could get his own photos. I took a set – but not much different than those already uploaded. I did add a quick courtroom photo – they were having a trial – so I took this before they resumed the trial. I also added photos of the Crockett Town Square.
