Mason County Courthouse, Texas

Mason County Courthouse, Texas
The Mason County Courthouse is located in Mason, Texas, population about 4000 people. Built in 1909, in the Beaux Arts style of architecture, with a center dome and clock tower, gable front porticoes, two-story doric columns, and rusticated stonework with contrasting stone lintels. The community was established around Fort Mason which was built in 1851 as part of a line of army forts from the Red River to the Rio Grande to open new areas and provide protection for settlers. This is the third courthouse and survives the first that burned in 1877 and the second that sustained fire damage in 1900. The square is surrounded by locally owned shops offering a variety of wares. A lovely setting for this public building!!!!
