Front of the Lamar County Courthouse

Description: Photograph of the upper-west end and face of the south side of the Lamar County Courthouse in downtown Paris, Texas. The courthouse is predominately in the "Classic Revival" style, however the first floor entrances are very similar to the previous courthouse, in the "Romanesque" style. Many of the early craftsmen and architects were not native Texans and the courthouse styles reflect that diversity.
