Description: Photograph of a restoration project under way on the 1890 - 1891 Classic Revival style Colorado County courthouse in down town Columbus, Texas. The original design was Classic Revival Style, with a clock and bell tower. A tornado toppled the tower and buried the bell in the lawn. The clock and bell tower were replaced with a dome and clocks. Re-modeled in the 1930s with out many changes of outside appearance. Today the Colorado County courthouse is still an example of the Classic Revival style.
