The Hill County Courthouse is a resplendent architectural showplace that has been carefully restored after a devastating fire. History comes alive in this wonderful place.

We were there Christmas week and everything downtown was decorated. Enjoyed the Christmas music coming from the courthouse tower every evening around 5pm.

The Hill County Courthouse is beautiful but, even more so, when decorated for the Christmas season. It is wonderful.

Architecture is phenomenal. Thais has to be one of the most spectacular old court houses. If you are anywhere near this is a must see. Walk inside and take a look. All I can say is WOW! I love history and this is it.

First, look at the pictures of the fire which gutted the place in 1993. Then go inside and marvel at the restoration, partially funded by home town hero, Willie Nelson. Beautiful new woodwork. Walls and exteriors all re-done and spruced. Would have been so easy...More

It may not be the most ornate of Texas Courthouse, but it is a beautiful structure. A fire some years back severely damaged the old building. The proud citizens of Hill County did not take the easy path of tearing down the old structure and...More
