A recent post featured the Navarro County Courthouse and a subsequent post featured the Lady Justice statue that guards the entrance of the courthouse. The courthouse was dedicated a few weeks ago and offered an open house after the ceremony. Although I was close by in Dallas the timing just didn't work for me (and I had a dog that probably would not have been allowed inside the building even though he is cleaner than most humans and very well behaved).
Thankfully, the Texas Historic Commission has shared a short film clip of the dedication and scenes of the stunning interior as well as a description of the columns made using the scagliola method and the little trick they played on a structural engineer! Lady Justice is also featured with an interesting proposal that her disappearance came when she was donated to the war effort. Click the link below:
