Shortly after Texas won its independence from Mexico in 1836, settlers began establishing county governments and the need for centralized meeting places became apparent. The Texas county seat and its central courthouse filled this role, becoming the symbol of independent self-government in Texas. (Submitted on May 15, 2011, by Wayne Ware of Georgetown, Texas.)
