Beautifully Restored Courthouse

Hillsboro has done an awesome deed by restoring their courthouse. Absolutely beautiful! They have a farmer's market on Saturdays during the summer.

Great courthouse. One of the prettiest I've ever seen. It has great architecture and character. Town has friendly people. There is a great restaurant right on the south east corner of the courthouse square named Frankie's. Great fun for a day trip

After a devastating fire, the Hill County Courthouse was restored to its original condition. The District Courtroom has had it's balcony restored. This is really a must see on a visit to Hillsboro.

Well-maintained lovely old courthouse. Beautiful tile throughout. Don't miss the vaults in the basement. Felt haunted, staff reported same.

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.

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.

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.
