Texas distinguishes itself as taking pride in its courthouses. In Far West Texas, we have the state's only adobe courthouse in Hudspeth County in Sierra Blanca. Jeff Davis and Presidio Counties have renovated their courthouses and Brewster County has a lovely courthouse as well. Back in the 1960s--before there was an appreciation for historic preservation--the Culberson County courthouse (pictured here) was razed for a newer building, a decision the city fathers have regretted ever since.
