Dimmit County Courthouse, Texas

see Dimmit County Jail
see Dimmit County Courthouse – Revisited
County Seat – Carrizo Springs

Built – 1884

Style – Classical Revival

Architect – J. C. Breeding (he was architect of style before 1927 remodeling)

Photos taken – January 29, 29006

Impressions – This Classical Revival building is pleasing appearance and substance.  However, it was originally designed as an Italianate styled building in 1884.  In 1927, the building was transformed into the Classical Revival style.  Probably not to the good, though the remodeling did give a good Classical feel.  There are few Italinate-styled courthouses in Texas (I can only think of Grimes County off the top of my head).

We took these photos on one of our Sunday drives on a nice winter’s day.  It’s a fair ways from San Antonio, but certainly doable if you want to get photos of all courthouses.  Since it was of many weekend trips, we weren’t able to take any interior photos.  Maybe they had a picture of the Italianate building and the original look.  I haven’t looked, but I bet there will be photos of the original courthouse on TexasEscapes
