Texas Courthouse in Anderson

Texas Courthouse in Anderson
Grimes County Courthouse
County Seat - Anderson, Texas
Date - 1893
Architect - F. S. Glover and
constructed by G.T. Macon and Thomas C. Foster, 1893
Style - Italianate
Material - Brick and stone
Its unusual architecture makes it one of the most visual pleasing courthouses in the state. Restored in 2002 - the courthouse has withstood two fires and has hosted the trial of a Barrow-Parker gang member in the 1930s. The building is a center hall plan with shallow pavillions on each side of the basically rectangular building. There is also a classical portico on the front facade with an irregular stone pediment and Ionic columns. The raised basement is smooth ash." Established in 1846, Grimes County
is in southeast Texas, forty miles northwest of Houston. Named for Jesse Grimes, veteran of the War of 1812, Texas pioneer and politician and signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence in 1836.
This view is on the back side... will post one of the front side later.
