(512) 581-7100

The Bastrop County Courthouse was built in 1883 and renovated in the 1920s. Along with its impressive display of historic photos documenting Bastrop’s early years, the courthouse itself holds a place as a Texas Historic Landmark. The Bastrop County Jail, built in 1891 and closed in 1974, is just next door and is a beautiful example of late 19th-century, second-empire Victorian architecture.
