A very nice representative of Texas Renaissance.  The outside facades were highly decorated and a pleasant surprise.  Inside, while not awe inspiring, is very representative of the 1920’s.  In the courtroom, the wood behind the bench was a nice touch.  The courthouse sits on one end of the town’s main street – with the old train depot sitting at the other end.
