Texas Courthouse Tour

There are 254 Texas counties, and many counties have more than one courthouse. Like other enthusiasts, I have set out to visit all of the historic Texas courthouses (yes, that’s a thing), and have dedicated this page to posting pictures and videos from my visits.

I have handled cases in many of these courthouses, but cannot choose a favorite. I love so many of them, but am partial to the designs of architects Alfred Giles and James Riely Gordon, both of whom were very active in and around San Antonio in the 1800s.

I hope you enjoy experiencing the many architectural styles of these fantastic buildings.  I will continue to add pictures to this page as I get the chance to experience “new” courthouses.

-A sampling of pictures from my visits to other courthouses, including the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C., will also be posted on this page.  I have labeled the non-Texas and abandoned courthouses as “BONUS.”
