Description

Law and order - that's what the early Texas frontiersman demanded and what the Shackelford County Courthouse was built to provide. Intrepid settlers on the westernmost edge of the Texas frontier faced danger from Comanche raiders, cattle rustlers, outlaws, and gamblers. Erected in 1883, to 'stand for 500 years', the architectural treasure is one of the oldest original courthouses still in use, is in the National Register of Historic Places, and has been restored according to historical preservation guidelines. Told by those who know and love the courthouse, and who grew up in its shadow, this lively tale features a memorable assortment of characters and exciting events.
