Sometimes things change radically. Other times there is little, if any, change and that is how I found the Orange County Texas Courthouse. Other than two 1960’s additions, one on either side of the Courthouse, the Courthouse has not changed since its completion in 1937.
The Texas Historic Commission describes the Courthouse as “Moderne” in style and, in my opinion, that is being generous. On my recent visit several panels on the front façade had either been removed or had fallen off and were awaiting restoration. Otherwise, the building looks much as it did in its early years of serving citizens of Orange County, Texas.
