Marshall revisited

Looking down East Austin

Marshall, Texas (population: 23,935), is the Harrison County Seat, and is 16 miles S of Jefferson, 76 miles N of Nacogdoches, and 51 miles E of Tyler.

View of the former Harrison County Courthouse (c. 1900, Renaissance Revival / Beaux Arts style) through the trees.

The current, and fifth, Harrison County Courthouse, built in 1964. Not quite the same as the other one, is it?

The 1900 courthouse is in the process of receiving a five million dollar face lift. It looked a lot better than it did the last time I was there, almost a year ago.
