This is a glamorous building in downtown Fort Worth. It is made of pink granite structure and topped with a magnificent clock. The building costed more than 400,000. The townsfolk disgusted at this unnecessary extravagance responded by ousting the entire Tarrant Court.

The exterior is the real treasure - The Tarrant County Courthouse, was designed by the architecture firm of Frederick C. Gunn & Louis Curtiss and built in 1893-1895. This pink Texas granite building, in Renaissance Revival style, closely resembles the Texas State Capitol with the exception of the clock tower. The building cost a huge $408,840 to construct. This was very controversial at the time but even after all of these years you can really see the quality and where the money went. Do not miss the Civil War Canon or the Fountain in the grounds.

This magnificent 1893 structure built of pink Texas granite, drew some controversy for the amount of money spent on its construction, but it came out great.You have to personally insect its architecture and details, plus the free museum (no charge). Although the courtrooms are open to the public (and their proceedings public record), don't try to get in wearing shorts, tank tops, etc. We didn't see Chuck Norris there. :)

A working courthouse with lots of marble and a small museum. You can see the men's room door used a Walker's office door in the TV series.

If you are there on a weekday, go inside to look up towards the top of the dome, see the small museum inside, and look at the courthouse replica made with matches. While there are many beautiful Texas courthouses, this one is one of the most impressive in terms of size and details.

A wonderful piece of history within walking distance of Sundance square . I work in a courthouse built around the same time around 1870 both of them beautiful and historical but this building is really impressive in the way it has been restored .It is still a fully operational Courthouse with mostly civil cases being heard so if visiting you still have to go through normal security measures . There are fantastic photos throughout the building showing its history and the detailed restoration that was carried out including having the original paint color on the walls .The courtrooms are impressive and everything is so clean and tidy .Had a great chat with one of the court bailiffs who gave us lots of info about the building .Beautiful timber work and an impressive rotunda at the centre of the building .Worth an hours visit and you could always pop into a court sitting .

I love visiting the courthouse. Be aware that you have to go through a metal scanner now so leave all hardware at home.,or in the car. The old oak chais that weigh a ton, the church like pews in the courtrooms. the staircases. Just like long ago yesterday.

The television program WALKER TEXAS RANGER was filmed here., and it has also appeared in several other movies as well. It is great that his courthouse was not demolished.

I enjoyed seeing what "old oil money" built. Lots of gilt and marble. Enjoyed the little museum inside too.

Built in 1895, this Renaissance Revival courthouse resembles the Texas State Capitol. It is constructed from pink Texas granite and cost over $400,000 to build. It can also be seen in the Chuck Norris TV show Walker, Texas Ranger.
