One of the first courthouses in the entire area. Quite pretty and historical and it still functions. Our son had a civil wedding ceremony on the front steps including mariachis serenading at the end. Went inside today and it's interesting too.

We had to add the Bexar County Courthouse to our list of historic Texas courthouses we’ve visited, but unlike many of the 245 Texas counties, the Bexar County Courthouse is hard to get to without making a definite time commitment. It’s pretty busy on the...More
