"Jewel of the Plains"

CLARENDON, TEXAS - The Donley County court house was built in 1890. It's unquie as a courthouse because all four sides of the exterior are completely different shapes. It was restored in 2003 for cost of two point eight million dollars.

People come from all over the United States to tour the courthouse. They've even had visitors from Europe and Asia.

The courthouse was the third one to receive a renovation grand for the Texas historical commission. No original blue prints remained, so the outside was reconstructed using old photographs.
