Coryell County, Texas

Wesley Clark Dodson was obviously well respected in the Texas county courthouse scene. He designed the Coryell County courthouse and it was completed in 1897, some 20 years after the McLellan County Courthouse was completed. Coryell County was done in the Victorian style, and while it isn’t nearly as big as McLellan, it’s still very pretty. Judge for yourself:

It’s a little difficult to see because of the trees, which has me thinking that I might need to make a winter season trip to get a better shot or two so that the architecture can really shine. It’s such a sacrifice to go back and see all these courthouses again, ya know. 😉
