Red River County Courthouse

There is an Irony for the courthouse in Clarksville. It is NOT on the square. The square is 3 blocks south with just a statue in the center of the square. The courthouse is at 315 North Walnut Street, Clarksville, TX Until just a few years ago, the Courthouse was in an area that was primarily residential. Now there is a new jail and some comercial buildup in the area where the courthouse has sat for a hundred years.

They did a great job on their restoration. Of all the historic courthouses in Texas I saw BEFORE their renovations, the one in Clarksville was the worst. Between the general poor condition and the indiscriminate modifications it was a horror. Now it is really nice and so I am told functional as well.
