Polk County Courthouse

County Seat – Livingston

Built – 1923

Style – Texas Renaissance

Architect – McLelland & Fink

Photos Taken – July 7, 2008

I want to say we were returning from a camping trip to somewhere – maybe Coushatta, and were headed to Lake Livingston for some courthouse photography and visit with our good friends – Mary & Mike, who were down from Palestine.

We photographed this courthouse as we passed through Livingston.  The style (Texas Renaissance), isn’t my favorite – but this had good strong elements – such as the white columns and an interesting roof line.   The courthouse was closed – it was either the weekend or after 5, we weren’t able to get interior photos.  While the courthouse was not terribly interesting, it does have an annex that was built in 1907.  The county kept the annex  in place – while the 1882 courthouse was torn down.
