Hudspeth County Courthouse in Sierra Blanca

This beautiful structure was built in 1919 and is the only adobe courthouse in the state of Texas, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places!  Do youself a favor and get off the freeway at Sierra Blanca to take a look at the inside of the building...the feel of the place is unique and proportions are interesting, perhaps because of its 18 inch thick walls!  To read about the Texas Historical Commission's Courthouse Presrvation Program, click here!
