Description: Photograph of the Lamar County Courthouse east entrance in downtown Paris, Texas. The cornerstone from the 1896 courthouse at this location is incorporated in the lower-right of the portico. The courthouse has Classic Revival-style architecture, however the entrances are designed similar to the Romanesque style of the old courthouse. The portico has Roman arched openings, short (Syrian) columns, polished red granite columns with carved stone capitals and bases. This offers continuity from old to new and creates a building with mixed styles of architecture.
