The Present Llano County Courthouse
- Llano, Texas

The Llano County Courthouse was built in 1892. This is Llano County's fourth courthouse and was designed by A. O. Watson and Jacob Larmour. A fire on January 22, 1892 destroyed the previous courthouse. The present one was completed August 1, 1893.

Photographer's Note:
"The architectural firm of Larmour & Watson was apparently dissolved during the construction of this building, which is why only Watson's name is on the cornerstone.

According to the Texas Historical Commission, the original tower was modified to the former pavilion shaped tower in 1913. The restoration of the original tower with its colonnades and cupola increases the height of the structure. The iron cresting on the roof has also been restored." - Terry Jeanson

"This postcard of the Llano River Bridge must have been taken before 1913 because it looks like the original cupola is still on the tower." - Terry Jeanson.
