One of the most beautiful courthouses I've ever visited. It has the old bell from the original courthouse on display with a plaque that tells the history.

A beautiful old piece of history, fixed it up nice since the fire (20 or so years ago), looks just like it did in decades past. Nice centerpiece to downtown.

we loved looking at the Hillsboro courthouse. It's structure and style have endured many years. Go and have a peek at this gentle giant.

The opening page for the courthouse has a pj0pto on it that is certainly not the courthouse. This courthouse was renovated a few years ago and while we did not go inside we drove around the courthouse square in this quality small downtown. The court house is really very nice looking from the outside. There are also some interesting looking... More

What a beautiful building since it has been restored after a fire. The clock tower can be seen for miles before you actually reach the courthouse square. If you are driving I35, it is a quick and worth-while detour.

The Hill County Courthouse in Hillsboro, Texas is a great restoration. The state of Texas has none done a great job of having some of their older Courthouses restored and this is a nice example of that work.

I remember the fire and am happy to see the old courthouse "up and running" again. These old gals are few and far between and can be seen for about five miles across the countryside. I seem to always smile when I approach her from the west, because her bell tower stands above everything else.

The original courthouse burned quite a few years and every effort was made to restore it to it's original beauty. Since Hillsboro has a rocky base, the basement was hewn out of rock and became the wals.

This courthouse was totally destroyed in 1993 but luckily at least one architectural piece of every achitectural element was saved for duplication. Today the courthouse stands again and is within 1/100th of an inch being exactly duplicated but with the most modern technological features.

I love the white stone building. The bathrooms are down in the basement and the walls are all stone. Every one that I have come into contact with there have been friendly and helpful!
