The Present Borden County Courthouse
Gail, Texas

Date: 1939
Architect: David S. Castle Co.
Style: Moderne
Material: One story brick with cast cement detail

Photographer's Note:

"The entire town of Gail, the only town in the county, is at the intersection of U.S. 180 and FM 669, so it's impossible to miss the courthouse. The interior of this building felt less like a courthouse and more like someone's home. During my visit, all of the courthouse employees were in the "kitchen" having their afternoon snack." - Terry Jeanson, August, 2006
