The Ochiltree County Courthouse

Date - 1928
Architect - Mann & Co.
Style - Texas Renaissance
Material - Brick, steel and concrete
Addition - 1974

This is the county's second courthouse. (The first in 1890.) In Texas Renaissance Style, the simple lines and good details make this courthouse a fine example of between-the-wars architecture. On the corner of Main and Sixth Street.

Photographer's Note:
The 1928 Ochiltree County courthouse -

"The original south side entrance and half of the rear side of the building have been obscured by the 1974 addition. Locals informed me that it's pronounced "AH-kull-tree."" - Terry Jeanson, March 2008
