Crockett County Courthouse

Designed by Texas pioneer architect, Oscar Ruffini, this American Gothic style building was completed in 1902 for a cost of $30,000 and replaced the earlier wooden frame courthouse. Listed on both the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and the Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks, this building served the local county government and was an early gathering place for community functions, including cowboy dances, box lunches, and roundup celebrations. The limestone materials used to construct the courthouse were quarried from the local Myers and Couch estates. Still used in county government today, the building underwent a total restoration that was completed in 2011. Located on the town square, the courthouse is just one of several buildings in the area recognized with Texas historical markers.
