Cherokee County


see Rusk Town Square


County Seat – Rusk

Built – 1941

Style – Moderne

Architect – Gill & Bennett, Inc.

Pictures taken – 3/15/04

Impressions – Good representation of architectural style and use of stone.  Rusk is home to Rusk State Park – which I believe is the nation’s only state park railroad.  The train goes from Rusk to Palestine and back.


The doors and some window covers, along with lamps and other details highlight the art deco feel that often be found in the moderne style.
