After seven years of renovations, the old Harrison County Courthouse was transformed into a historical museum.  The building, which was originally built in 1901 and designed by James Riely Gordon, is known by many as the center of the Wonderland of Lights in Marshall, Texas, but now is home to several historic exhibits of Harrison County.  The Courthouse is an excellent example of Renaissance Revival, Beaux Art and Classical architecture.

Architexas provided a Historic Structures Report, master plan, and speciļ¬cations to meet the requirements of the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program. Phase I included full architectural services for the restoration of the roof and dome and the coordination of the Christmas Festival lighting. Phase II was comprised of full architectural services for selective interior demolition and exterior restoration. Phase III included architectural services for interior renovation and restoration. The primary philosophy and treatment of this project was restoration. Phase III resulted in full restoration of the Old Harrison County Courthouse, restoring it to its 1928 integrity.  Architexas won several awards for this project, including the Texas Historical Commission, 10 Beautifully Restored Courthouses in Texas.
