Another beautiful Texas Court House with a story - Atascosa CountyEvery courthouse in Texas is unique, but the one in Jourdanton has a special claim to fame: it’s the only existing Mission Revival-style courthouse in the state.

By as early as 1722, El Camino Real de los Tejas (one of the Spanish royal highways) from the Rio Grande to San Antonio was well established in this area. The Spanish word “atascosa,” denoting boggy ground that hindered travel, gave the region its name.

Jourdanton became the county seat in 1911, necessitating a new courthouse. San Antonio architect Henry T. Phelps provided the design, and the Atascosa County Courthouse was completed in 1913.

The courthouse’s Mission Revival characteristics include shaped parapets, pyramidal tile roofs with broad overhangs, balconies with decorative iron railings, arched openings, and wooden windows with divided lights.

The building was restored in 2003 through the THC’s Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
