The Presidio County Courthouse was built in 1886. It is an example of Second Empire style, with projecting surfaces and Mansard-style roofs that were in fashion in Europe in the mid-19th century. J.H. Britton designed this imposing building.
The Texas Historic Commission funded a complete restoration of the courthouse. It was rededicated in 2001.
Take the elevator and stairs to the cupola and enjoy a 360 degree panorama of the Marfa Plateau and nearby Davis Mountains. The Goddess of Justice stands atop the dome of the Courthouse.
The courthouse is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm.
