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.
