The Hopkins County Courthouse is a historic courthouse located in Sulphur Springs, Texas, the seat of Hopkins County. It was designed by San Antonio-based architect James Riely Gordon and constructed in 1894 and 1895. The courthouse was built in the Romanesque Revival architectural style with red sandstone and pink granite, and its design includes a number of unusual features, such as a double-helix staircase, a clockless tower, and entrances that are located on its northwest and southwest corners, instead of on its sides.

The building was restored in 2001 and 2002 at a cost of $3.66 million to the State of Texas and $1.3 million to Hopkins County, and it continues to serve as an operating courthouse that is open to the public on a daily basis. The courthouse has also received numerous awards and accolades, including its designation as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1975 and its addition to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.

  • We were given a very interesting to her by one of the sheriffs. Learned a lot about the history of the courthouse in Hopkins County. We’ve toured many courthouses and this was one of the best.

  • Beautiful architecture in the small town of Sulphur Springs. Besides it is a war memorial. The one-way glass toilet structures in the town square are probably more eye-catching. Experience for yourself doing your own business while others outside were 'watching'. Don't worry, nothing can be seen from outside.
  • Stunning architecture with very nice surrounding area and thriving downtown as well.
