Constructed in 1923-24, this courthouse replaced an earlier building on this site which burned in 1917. Designed by noted architect Henry T. Phelps of San Antonio, the 3-story Classical Revival structure features four half-round giant order Doric columns which support a large entablature with a simply detailed parapet. Native stone for the building was obtained from nearby quarries. The courthouse has been the site of numerous community events over the years.
