Ol' Red

While in the Alamo City, I couldn't resist taking a walk and snapping a few pictures of the Bexar County Courthouse. It's a beautiful red sandstone building that was designed in the Romanesque Revival style. The courthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.

Construction of the courthouse commenced in 1892 and was completed in 1896. The building is undergoing a renovation.

This is a shot of the plaza on the Dolorosa Street side of the courthouse.

This shot was also taken on the Dolorosa side.

This shot was taken from the Nueva Street entrance.
