Texas county courthouses—a sampler

I wanted to share a few of the courthouse photos that I shot over the Thanksgiving weekend. We traveled 500 miles, coming back from the Texas panhandle, and I photographed seven courthouses that were situated right next the the road we traveled.

I tried to get the flagpole and flags in each shot, but it wasn’t possible at every courthouse. Some flags were out by the road or hidden behind a tree in the photo I wanted to take.

The state of Texas is divided into 255 counties, and I suppose every county must have a courthouse of some sort. I don’t have dates for when these four shown below were built, but their styles are unique.

The King County Courthouse picture is of the old courthouse, sitting next to a more modern brown brick building housing the county government now. It looks like they may be restoring the old courthouse, maybe making it a museum. That would be great.
