Such a beautiful, people filled, thriving shops and businesses, on the Square. Tree lined on all sides of the courthouse. You will see people seeking history facts, selling puppies, playing music for tips, artists paining! Weekends have all kinds of people selling their wares, there are vendor festivals, food trucks, people picnicking on the grounds. Just a great place to send the day! Reminds me of Waxihatchie, Tx.
Not only is this court house absolutely beautiful around Xmas time when all the lights are all set up. I also got married here and it was so nice and the judge was so humble and patient. I recommend visiting this Court yard and at least walking around to see the historic beauty.
