Hopkins County Courthouse

Sulphur Springs, Texas

Architexas provided phased restoration master planning and full architectural services for the historic 1894 J. Riely Gordon designed county courthouse. The Phase I scope of work, completed in December of 2001, addressed the restoration of the exterior courthouse. Phase I also included the restoration of the exterior sandstone and granite structure and tower as well as window rehabilitation and stabilization. Phase II addressed the accessibility and life safety items necessary to bring the building up to compliance with the code requirements. Phase II also included rehabilitation of county offices and courtrooms in a manner that preserved the historic integrity of the building while integrating new systems throughout. The project met the standards of the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program.
