An Old Texas Beauty
February 19, 2019
This amazing courthouse is in Giddings, TX which is the county seat of Lee County. Texas has a lot of wonderful county courthouses that are beautiful, and this is certainly one of the prettiest that I’ve seen. It is registered on the National Registry of Historic Places. This is actually the second courthouse on this site and was built in 1897. It was designed in the Richardson Romansque style by architect J. Riely Gordon. We were there on a Sunday, so the courthouse was locked, and I wasn’t able to go inside to get some photos. Nevertheless, it is such a beautiful Grande Dame that it was OK not to be able to go inside, and gave me enough pleasure walking around the perimeter and taking photos.
