Built in the late 1800s, the Bandera County Courthouse is one of the oldest and tallest structures within the Bandera city limits. Built of locally quarried limestone, the building was designed by B.F. Trestor Jr. and built by immigrant Russian stonemasons. A Renaissance revival styled building with colonial Spanish influence, the courthouse stands out from all other buildings of the same era in the city.

For a city that claims to be the “Cowboy Capital of the World”, the County Courthouse stands out as a living testament to the cities wild west heritage as a living reminder of the past.
