- LEON COUNTY COURTHOUSE - When the Leon County Courthouse
burned in 1885, the smoke had scarcely died away before a contract
was let to erect a new one. Completed in 1887, the "new"
courthouse was built of slate bricks handmade near the site. The
courthouse is one of the oldest such buildings in Texas.
