This courthouse is a beautiful piece of history. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful courtroom and all the woodwork. It is kept very clean and it is nice to be able to wander around inside while the offices are still in use. I was a little disappointed that there was no one to ask questions, and the top level was closed... More

We took a stroll in and around the courthouse just as they were opening. Beautiful building both inside and out. They do have the very top closed off but it is still something to go see!

This courthouse is located in the city center of Marfa. It's usually closed on the weekends, but it is very pretty and a unique center of attraction in the middle of town. Stop by and check it out if you're in town.

Definitely worth seeing AND climbing all the way to the top of the dome. It is only 86 steps and offers quite an expansive view of the area. the building is lovely as are the furnishings.

It is a beautiful stone work of art, worth a stroll around. Go inside and take the elevator to the 3rd floor, then climb the last 2 floors for a great view of Marfa spreading out for 6 blocks all around you. :)

My husband and I love to view and walk around the old Texas court houses. The Presidio County Courthouse in Marfa is a beautiful courthouse as well. If you are in Marfa, the courthouse and square is certainly worth a short stop and a picture.

We walked up and down the courthouse, magnificent building made out of wood which are in good condition and well maintain. The people who work there very friendly and if you asked a question they answer with great pride. Architecturally stunning. It is a gem in that area and a must to see and visit.
