They have renovated this and it is worth seeing. While you are there check out the quaint drug stores across the plaza. You might be surprised at the soda counter and rustic items.

This courthouse looks very stately. It certainly dominates the square and occupies a good space. There are several interesting monuments around the outside and a great ring of seats as well. The stores on the square were interesting too. Great history in this area!

We pulled over to stretch our legs and walked around the courthouse. Read markers and enjoyed the architecture. The town square around it is impressive. {Visit the Bill Chappell gallery, his bio, leather work displayed & art work is available too.

Hamilton County, Texas wasn't formed as early as some Texas areas, but it has been home to the Commanche Indians for a very long time. All around the County are reminders of the Indians who lived here and the immigrate families that arrive in the...More
