I just had a VIP tour of the Granbury Courthouse, which has been named as one of the finest courthouses in Texas. This is a substantial building with two main floors, two separate basements, a third floor that is closed to the public, and a tall clock tower. It is considered an honor to be asked if you want to climb the clock tower. I was asked and declined as the heat, darkness, and ship's ladder were just too much for me to deal with.
A fire in the 1870s destroyed nearly all the old records of Hood County. When this building was planned, it was thought to be as fireproof as possible.
As you can see by the photos, I really did get a complete tour.
