Coryell County Courthouse

Rolling farmland with wooded breaks along the Leon River marks the approach to Gatesville. In the town square, the magnificent Beaux Arts courthouse is easily recognized by its soaring cupola with clock and bell tower. The Coryell Museum and Historical Center, located just off the 1897 courthouse square, displays a double-walled log jail and a large collection of spurs, as well as an impressive assortment of memorabilia from the county’s churches, schools and businesses.
