Owner description: Beautifully designed courthouse built in 1891.
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I spent 4 days in the courthouse for jury duty. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful, clean, and functional it is. The courtrooms could be movie sets. Beautiful wood furniture that was also comfortable. The whole building is very clean. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The cafeteria is quite good, but can get a bit crowded at times. The grounds are lovely. I shared a granola bar with a squirrel while sitting on a bench under the trees. Nice!

This old courthouse is a great structure. There is a dome that looks like a beehive on top and :"RUMOR" has it that it was built by a mormon that left his industrious beehive tradmark on it.

Believe I was told this is the oldest courthouse being utilized in Texas. It's very well maintained and very clean.

There is some information in the Courthouse of interest to tourists, but other locations in San Antonio would be a better use of your time. Let's just say that I am usually in this building 3 days/week.

Needs a lot of work inside - very dated - needs a little TLC.
