Beautiful Presidio County Courthouse

Texas is blessed with beautiful county courthouses, and with the efforts of many people who've worked hard on their restoration.  The Texas Historical Commission leads a restoration program for qualifying courthouses.  One of the recipients of support from the THC's program is the lovely Presidio County Courthouse in Marfa.

One of our favorite things to do when the courthouse is open, is to climb the 80 or so steps to the top of the building for a 360 degree view of Marfa and the grassland surrounding the town.  It is a perfect "mini-break" to appreciate the beautiful building's architecture and the local community and landscape.
