The 1937 Courthouse replaced the original one built in 1886. Courthouses of Texas by Mavis Kelsey, Sr. and Donald Dyal calls it "an interesting mix of Classical Revival and Mediterranean elements". We couldn't have said it better ourselves. As nice as it is, we'd prefer to have the 1886 courthouse back.


Photographer's Note:
The 1937 Reeves County courthouse was designed by the fraternal architectural firm of Trost & Trost. The Trost brothers were based in El Paso and designed at least 300 buildings there (including the 1917 El Paso County courthouse) and hundreds more throughout West Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. - Terry Jeanson
