Worth climbing to the top tower and watching a train go through this tiny, but special town. There’s a pecan tree in front of the courthouse, look around, you might find a snack!

This was an unexpected pleasure. The buildings interior is beautiful, the staircase incredible and the view from the cupola is outstanding. I didn’t think it would be as great as it was. Just follow the stairs up...no hassle, no drama. Just plain cool.

I guess you have to be in to western history or architecture to appreciate this place. It was an unexpected site in this small town and was interesting to see it. However, after a few moments, I had had enough and wanted to move on.

When strolling thru the town, it's worth the short walk into the old building to see the beautiful staircase and court rooms.

Beautiful historic courthouse in downtown Marfa. One of the nicest courthouses in the state of Texas.

The architecture is striking. Looks like they are doing some work on it. The woodwork on the inside is fantastic. Wish the trees didn't block the facade from the street. Fall or spring visitors would likely get a better unobstructed view for pictures.

This is a beautiful building that stands out from everything else you see in Marfa, it was the weekend so we couldn't go in but still something to see as you're walking around the shops.
