DeWitt County Courthouse in 2003
Cuero, Texas

The Courthouse Clock, Bell and Architectural Details

A Photo Essay

See DeWitt County Courthouse - Photos & History
The 1897 Courthouse is the pride of Cuero, so much so that they named a street after it. Designed by A.O. Watson (who went bankrupt building it) it offers an excellent unobstructed view for photographers and courthouse freaks. It's also unusual in that there are virtually no businesses or buildings facing "The Square".
