The architecture is really beautiful, but be warned: those front steps are steep and not for those with knee problems.

Nothing to brag about. If you are downtown and visiting Sundance Square, walk over to the court house and see it if you have never seen it before. At the end of the day, it is still just a court house and nothing overly special.

The Architect (Art Weinman) is doing a fabulous job of restoration of the Clock Tower (and Clock) and the Tarrant Commissioners Court should get kudos for doing it right. The little "1895 history room" is well done, but too small in size and scope. VERY beautiful Courthouse. Take a tour if you can. FREE!

Inside, there's breathtaking carved wood trim and panelling everywhere, marble staircases with wrought iron. Hard listening to a court case with all the architectural beauty around you.

Still in limited use and in immaculate Victorian era condition. Several very elaborate walnut paneled courtrooms. A must see for visitors.
