The first permanent building for the county after the government seat was moved from Blanco in 1890, the two-story, hipped-roof Classical Revival building is faced with rusticated limestone. The pedimented entrance projects slightly from the building plane and is defined by four equally spaced, engaged Doric columns. The contractor, James Waters-ton, was a Scottish stonemason who worked on the State Capitol ( AU1).
