Not the prettiest of Courthouses. Dilapidated and it doesn’t seemed to be lined up for restoration. But it did play a huge role in history. Years ago, Duval county miraculously found enough votes to just barely get Lyndon Johnson into Congress. This is where his nickname – Landslide Lyndon came from.
We took these photos on one of trips to the wonderful state park – Lake Corpus Christi. San Diego is not far from Alice, so while it’s not very impressive, it is easy to take in if your in the Alice area.
