1. Webb County Courthouse 1909. 254 Texas Courthouses website entry:
The Webb County Courthouse, designed by the noted Texas architect, Alfred Giles, represents one of the finest examples of Mr. Giles' remarkable ability to handle successfully a variety of new styles rather late in his professional career. The distinctive architectural style of the courthouse presents a combination of Mr. Giles' earlier, more ornate efforts, with his relatively modish later works after the turn of the century.

2. Webb County Courthouse. Wikipedia entry:
The Beaux-Arts building features a curved judge's bench. A stained glass window features "Justice" holding the scales. Tile floors are in the Mediterranean style. Alamo Iron Works produced the wrought iron staircases. Interior doors are solid wood with brass knobs. Mansard roofed terminal pavilions feature stone-carved rams head accents. The building features yellow brick with dressings of white stone and red tile mansard roofs. The landscaping includes pecan trees and citrus trees.
