San Saba County Courthouse

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United State Department of the Interior 

"In 1856, The Texas legislature created and organized San Saba County. A two story frame courthouse (1857-1878) and later a stone courthouse (1878-1910) on this site served the county and provided space for public gatherings. In 1910 the city of San Saba incorporated and county residents, spurred by news of a railroad connection, authorized a new courthouse. Alabama Architect Walter Chamberlain designed this classical revival building, faced in pressed brick and rusticated sandstone. Completed by the time of the first train's arrival in August 1911, it serves as the seat of justice "from the people to the people." Recorded Texas Historic Landmark
