Worth climbing to the top tower and watching a train go through this tiny, but special town. There’s a pecan tree in front of the courthouse, look around, you might find a snack!

This was an unexpected pleasure. The buildings interior is beautiful, the staircase incredible and the view from the cupola is outstanding. I didn’t think it would be as great as it was. Just follow the stairs up...no hassle, no drama. Just plain cool.

When strolling thru the town, it's worth the short walk into the old building to see the beautiful staircase and court rooms.
