Stopped in the town square to look at the local shops but the area is really dominated by the County Courthouse in the middle of the square. Its a very impressive building a worth some time to admire.

The county clerk staff that handles walk-in passport applications are great: efficient, friendly, and knowledgable. Once you are done, take a few minutes to relax in their atriun with a wonderful fountian.

What a fabulous old piece of Fayette County history. The building is amazing and has definitely withstood the test of time as well as the weather and elements. It is a Fayette County treasure. Too bad she can’t talk!!

One of the very few Texas courthouses with an atrium inside. Over 100 years old and still functioning. Make sure to go inside the courtroom as it is very nice as well.

I am undertaking a tour of all 254 Texas county courthouses. Fayette County was number 23. I was pleasantly surprised that this one was open on a Saturday. The Fayette County courthouse is the only one in the state with an atrium. It has been...More

This is one of two in the state that has an atrium in it. At one point it was used to help cool the courthouse. After one of the latest renovations, it was turned into an architectural detail. It is great to see historical buildings...More
