The Present San Saba County Courthouse
- San Saba, Texas

Recorded Texas Historic Landmark

Date - 1911
Architect - Chamberlin & Co.
Material - Brick and sandstone
Location - US 190 and Live Oak St.

This 1911 is in the style known as Texas Renaissance. In fact, the Late Williard Robinson, called it the archetype of the style according to Courthouses of Texas by Mavis Kelsey and Donald H. Dyal.

Photographer's Note:
The courthouse in San Saba is one of the few courthouses in Texas with a statement ("From the people to the people") carved over its entrances. The architect of this courthouse, Walter Chamberlain, also designed the Deaf Smith County courthouse in Hereford which was built in 1910. - Terry Jeanson
