Harrison County Courthouse

Marshall, Texas

Architexas provided a Historic Structures Report, master plan, and specifications to meet the requirements of the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program. Phase I included full architectural services for the restoration of the roof and dome and the coordination of the Christmas Festival lighting, completed in 1999. Phase II was comprised of full architectural services for selective interior demolition and exterior restoration, nearly complete. Phase III included architectural services for interior renovation and restoration. The primary philosophy and treatment of this project was restoration. Phase III resulted in full restoration of the Old Harrison County Courthouse, restoring it to its 1928 integrity. The Harrison County Courthouse became a “primary, working courthouse”, with county commission offices and a county historical museum inhabiting the building. The Harrison County Historical Museum will be a fully functioning historical museum.
