"This structure replaced the gutted courthouse of 1895, designed by the former Fort Worth partnership of Messer and Sanguinet. The Romanesque arches and heavy rustication of the earlier courthouse were incorporated into the 1916 structure, creating an interesting stylistic juxtaposition."

Artist: Messer and Sanguinet
