The Present Jackson County Courthouse
- Edna, Texas

Architect - F. Perry Johnson
Style - Modern
Material - Brick & concrete


Photographer's Note
:
"This modern building was built to replace the graceful 1906 Beaux-Arts style courthouse and has all the charm of an abandoned nursing home. An abundance of flowering trees and bushes have been planted around this courthouse, possibly in an attempt to hide it from public view. " - Terry Jeanson, 2008
