A beautiful black iron fence, behind the Christmas garland, surrounds another small Texas town courthouse.
The 170' tall Courthouse, built in 1897, is constructed of brown sandstone and grey stone from Texas. It is written in a brochure, that the stone was shipped in by rail car as large boulders. They were cut on site by the local farmers and other laborers.
Beautiful Romanesque arches frame the entrance doors on all four sides of the building.
The clock tower, with 2-story high windows, can be seen for miles away.
It is easy to see the community, population around 2,300, takes the decorating of the Town Square very seriously.....
