Kerr County Courthouse

-A A +A
1926, Adams and Adams. Main St. at Sidney Baker St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

Considering the construction date, this is a rather restrained classical design, with almost no ornamentation beyond the main entrance portico and bracketed cornice. Corinthian columns support a broken pediment over the entrance bridged by a curved little balcony. The massive addition to the rear overwhelms the original design.
