The National Trust for Historic Preservation announced Monday a month-long campaign to celebrate Texas courthouses. The National Trust, THC and Preservation Texas representatives will visit Goliad on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 1:45 p.m., to spotlight the restored courthouse.
The courthouse was restored and rededicated by the community in 2003. Major funding for the project was provided through the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program, the largest preservation grant program in the country.
Beginning in February, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Texas Historical Commission, and Preservation Texas will invite the public to show their appreciation for these places through online photo and story sharing.
In 2012, the National Trust listed Texas’ historic courthouses to its list of “America’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Places” for the second time, and has since named them a National Treasure, signifying their national significance and the Trust’s ongoing commitment to their preservation.
