Description: Photograph of the historic plaque at Concho County Courthouse. It says: "First permanent courthouse for Concho County. Built in 1886, replacing crude early structure. Architects were the brothers F. E. and Oscar Ruffini who also constructed the first main building at the University of Texas. As F. E. Ruffini lived only long enough to draw plans for this courthouse, his brother completed it. Architecture is 'French Second Empire.' Use of rusticated stone - which came from a quarry only a few miles away - is unusual in this style. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1962"
