Burnet in Burnet County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
The Burnet Bulletin
Completed in 1872, this structure was used continuously as a general retail merchandising store until about 1900. Since that time it has served as a combination furniture store and mortuary and as telephone company offices. The second floor was used as a courtroom during the 1930s, while a new county courthouse was constructed.
With historic ties to the early days of Burnet, both the "Bulletin" and this building are important reminders of the area's heritage.
