You have just arrived at the premier web site for images of all 254 active courthouses in the State of Texas as well as any retired Texas courthouses that still stand today. We at TexasCourthouses.com put several thousand miles on our vehicles and burned several hundred tanks of gasoline to pictorially document these fabulous structures. While traveling across the expansive 266,807 square miles of Texas was no easy feat, it was an incredibly enjoyable and adventurous task, and we highly recommend taking the time to visit these icons of justice.
As we traveled the state we also took notice of other historic buildings that are either architecturally interesting or artistically pleasing, so we made room for these new additions within our web site situated under four new menu headings; Historic Jails, Historic Churches, Historic Bridges and Historic Theaters have been added to our Texas Courthouses. Make sure that you include these on your travel itinerary too when traversing the state!
To promote commerce in small town Texas by encouraging travel and tourism to the state’s unique historical and cultural landmarks via Heritage Tourism.

Say ‘Hi’ to Mom and Pop
Enjoy your virtual tour of historic Texas as you navigate our website and don’t forget that when you hit the open road, to stop in and say “howdy” to mom and pop, as we know that they are waiting to greet you with a warm Texas welcome! Trust us when we say that they are as big a part of Texas as the architecture and history of Texas itself.
We support and promote Heritage Tourism at Texascourthouses.com.
What is Heritage Tourism you might ask? Heritage Tourism embodies the goals of preservation and tourism. It uses assets – historic, cultural and natural – that already exist. Rather than creating and building attractions, destinations loom into the past to help create a sustainable future. So, creating a dynamic travel experience lives on in the stories and structures of the past.
Your Comments, Suggestions, and Photos
Please note that we continually modify this site with new images of restored courthouses, but if you see one that might be out of date, please be patient with us as we travel, take pictures and update the photographs. And feel free to send us an email with your comments about our web site to let us know what we could do to better meet your needs. Also, let us know about any buildings that should be included in one of our galleries. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not accept any 3rd party photographs due to ownership and copyright issues, but we might pursue this avenue in the future. So with this said, we would love to take a look at your pictures, but posting them on our website is not feasible at this time.
