Parker County Courthouse

The Parker County Courthouse is an historic building located at Courthouse Square in Weatherford, Texas, the seat of Parker County. Built in 1884–86, it was the county's fourth courthouse; the first was a wooden building, and the second and third both burned down. Architect Wesley Clark Dodson, who designed at least six courthouses in Texas, designed the Second Empire building. The three-story limestone building is visually divided into five bays; the end and central bays are projecting and feature stone pilasters at their corners. The second-story windows are tall and arched, and the roof line features bracketing around the eaves. The red shingled roof has two mansards atop the ends and a three-story tower in the center; each piece features dormers and a widow's walk, while the tower has louvers and a clock on its upper stories.

The courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 21, 1971.
