Lampasas County Courthouse

I told you it was beautiful. . .

the Lampasas County Courthouse, built in 1883, has withstood, floods and fire. The beautiful Second Empire Italianate Architecture was designed by W.C. Dodson from Waco TX.

The awesome clock in the central tower was designed by the Seth Thomas Clock Company,
who also designed the clock at Grand Central Station, New York City. . .
I found this bit of information fascinating. . .

Overall it was a great day of sightseeing,
and taking in the historical ambience of the very interesting little town of Lampasas TX. ..
