Armstrong County Courthouse, Front Facade
Armstrong County: Claude, Texas
In July of 2015 I made a five day trip with fellow photographer David Billingsley to the Texas Panhandle. On that trip we visited twenty-six counties and one of those counties was Armstrong which is located in the middle of the Panhandle.
The courthouse is located off US287 at 100 Trice St. It was built in 1912 in what is called Texas Renaissance style. It was designed by architect, Elmer George Withers.
There are six Texas Historical Commission markers in the front of the courthouse. These plaques are as follows; Charles Howard Roan, The Great Panhandle Indian Scare, Boy Scout Troop No. 17, Town of Claude, Dr. and Mrs. Wm. A. Warner, and Armstrong County.
Across the street from the courthouse you can buy a gun or antiques, have a cup of coffee and the Cowboy Morning Cafe and stay in the Caprock Hotel.
