This old courthouse

I love old courthouses and the Colorado County Courthouse in Columbus, Texas is a beauty. The best way to experience it is to get off the interstate at US90 and take it into town. You will come to a fantastic old bridge across the Colorado River and then, as you come around the bend - there's the courthouse.


The courthouse sits on a square surrounded by downtown Columbus. The fountain looks a bit out of place and the two additions really need to go - but, all in all, a very nice building. The bench in the County Court has some amazing woodwork, too.

The Fayette County courthouse in La Grange is beautiful. It has a working fountain inside the courthouse. Its worth going to see.

Thanks for your comment.

I've been to the Fayette County Courthouse. Beautiful does not begin to describe that building. The atrium is fantastic and the County Courtroom reminds me of the one in To Kill a Mockingbird.

I've got some photos somewhere that I need to dig out and publish.
