Beginning in 1999, the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program, and its local partners have made significant financial investments to restore many valuable historic courthouses throughout the state.
In order to protect and preserve these buildings for future generations, the Texas Courthouse Stewardship Program was created in 2005 to assist counties by fostering facility planning, budgeting and training. The goal is to prevent the facilities from returning to a state of deferred maintenance and disrepair.
