Bell County Courthouse

Location – Belton
Built – 1884, Restored  1999
Architect – Jasper N. Preston and Sons
Style – Renaissance Revival
Pictures taken June 24, 2014

This courthouse has undergone a recent restoration project.  During an earlier remodel – the beautiful tower had been removed  – leaving it as a sad reflection of its original glory.  The restoration put the tower back on, and that is what makes this courthouse what it is.  I can’t tell you why I don’t have photos of the district court – but the photos of the cream and gold commissioner’s court are impressive.  We had kind of expected a grand central view up into the tower – but that wasn’t part of the building’s plan.
