"The current courthouse dates from 1935. The architects were L.M. Wirtz & Harold Calhoun. (They also designed the Burnet County courthouse.) The style is "federal" with Art Deco details. Given the tight fit on the block, there isn't room for additions. The building is simple, elegant, and in re-latively good condition.  Increased security at courthouse has resulted in the closing of the four primary entrances to the building." -
