NRHP Nomination Form

"Designed in 1935 by Austin architect Cornell G. Curtis and constructed in 1936-37 by El Paso builder Robert E. McKee, the three-story, cast-in-place concrete structure is sheathed in Texas fossil limestone with Texas creme limestone spandrels. "Modernistic" in its spare, stylized design details, the stepped massing of the courthouse is ornamented by monumental fluted pilasters and relief rondels that depict symbols of the environment and economy of Chambers County."
