Statue of Justice that formerly adorned the Comanche County Courthouse

Statue of Justice that formerly adorned the Comanche County Courthouse

Date: August 1, 2005
Creator: Belden, Dreanna L.
Description: Justice statue that formerly adorned the Comanche County Courthouse, but was taken down when Comanche County's 1891 courthouse was razed in 1939. A windstorm blew away her scales in the early 20th century. They were never found. The arm and hand that rested on her sword have been severely damaged and the sword is long gone. Most unusual: she is not blindfolded. Atop the Coryell County Courthouse is a twin representation of this figure.

Old Cora Courthouse, Historic Plaque

Old Cora Courthouse, Historic Plaque

Date: August 1, 2005
Creator: Belden, Dreanna L.
Description: Old Cora Courthouse. Soon after the creation of Comanche County in 1856, the town of Cora (10 Mi. SE) was platted to serve as the county seat. The courthouse in Cora, typical of many early Texas Courthouses, was a 12'7" x 12'10", one room, squared log structure. It served the county until the seat of government was moved to Comanche in 1859. The "Old Cora" courthouse was incorporated into a house built about 1880 and has been moved several times over the years. It stands as a reminder of the now-extinct town of Cora and of early Texas Courthouse architecure.
