The current Hopkins County Courthouse was finished in 1895 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. It was also designated as a Texas Landmark in 1975. Designed by J. Riely Gordon, it was one of 18 county courthouses designed and built between 1885 and 1901. This courthouse is one of 12 that remain standing.
It was built in the Romanesque Revival style, and unlike most Texas county courthouses, was built on the northeast corner of the Sulphur Springs town square instead of in the center.
This particular Little Free Library location is listed as Charter #8761.
I hope that when the pandemic is over and the public is allowed in, I can see and document the amazing interior.
