Hill County Courthouse

Hillsboro, Texas

A fire razed most of the Hill County Courthouse in 1991, but with the use of fragments remaining from the fire and a few historic photographs, Architexas prepared the documents for the reconstruction of the building. The project utilized ISTEA funds and was a catalyst for the development of the Texas Historical Commission’s Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program when the county judge got involved in obtaining funding from the legislature. The project involved multiple phases of construction due to funding shortages, despite the help of local talents like Willie Nelson. Former President and then-Governor, George W. Bush, attended the opening ceremony and the First Lady assisted in obtaining state funds for other courthouses.
