This 1894 courthouse ranks up there with some of the other beautiful county courthouses build in Texas. In fact, this one in Goliad was designed by the same person as the Caldwell courthouse in Lockhart (both are beautiful). We brought our bikes to go on the Angel of Goliad Hike and Bike Trail because the trailhead is just 2 short blocks to the south. This is a perfect starting point because you can also see the courthouse and the beautiful historic town square that surrounds the courthouse.

The Goliad courthouse is beautifully restored to its 1894 appearance. The square is also quaint and a great example of a historic courthouse square. The lawn around the courthouse is full of old live oak trees and multiple historic plaques to read.

We had the wonderful opportunity to visit this beautiful county courthouse while touring this most historic city. The courthouse is beautifully preserved though it is still a working facility. Any staff you encounter will glady give a short but informative tour. The staircases are original and a must-see. An additional must visit includes the familiar Hanging Tree located in front of the square. There are some really good vintage shops and restaurants on the square. A grest side visit after visiting the Presidio Bahia.

We arrived at the courthouse just 10 minutes before closing, but we dashed in and experienced the grandeur that once was so important to our early state residents. Well worth a stop!

Goliad square was a surprise find in our trip through Texas history. The town square boasts one of the finest examples of court house architecture that we have seen in any of our travels. The site is well preserved complete with "The Hanging Tree" still thriving right outside of the court house steps. Spend some time wondering the grounds and you will begin to grasp life in a Texas town in the 1800's. When you are tired step across the street to one of the wonderful restaurants.
