Stopping here while in Marfa to hunt some geocaches walked around the courthouse and downtown a few shops nearby and a couple of good restaurants. There is a hotel there that was in the movie Giant!!!

Pretty Courthouse, and easily accessible from the main drag in Marfa. We didn't go inside, but it was pretty enough from the outside. The Courthouse isn't in the center of a town square like many Texas towns, but it's more at the "head of the table," so to speak. One of the nicest buildings in town.

The Presidio County Courthouse if a well preserved, well maintained, and functioning edifice that is the center of Marfa. The pink stucco exterior blends with the brown pastels of the chihuahua desert and the cupola towers above the town for a tremendous view of the entire area. Drop by and climb to the top of the Courthouse for the best... More

There are some terrific photo opportunities here. The color of the stone, the unusual architecture, and the well-kept square make it a great place to wander by and take some pictures.

You wouldn't want to miss the richly textured interior of this well-preserved building. It's grandeur seems a bit out of character for this modest, retro-style town, but that's it's attraction.

This old building has been kept in great shape and it's fun to walk through and see the old wooden stairs and railings, the courtroom that looks like we expect a courtroom to look, and a couple of beautiful chandeliers. It just takes a few minutes to walk through and it is well worth it.

This courthouse is beautiful. It has a lot of precious wood all through it. There is five floors. The courtroom on the 2nd floor is beautiful. The wood is unbelievable on the walls and the ceiling The chandelier is made of metal is a very unique design. This is the only thing to see in Marfa unless you want to... More

This courthouse is a beautiful piece of history. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful courtroom and all the woodwork. It is kept very clean and it is nice to be able to wander around inside while the offices are still in use. I was a little disappointed that there was no one to ask questions, and the top level was closed... More

We took a stroll in and around the courthouse just as they were opening. Beautiful building both inside and out. They do have the very top closed off but it is still something to go see!
