On Friday, I had a chance to venture down to Cleburne.  I took a few photographs.  My two favorites are of the Johnson County Courthouse.  The first is an elevation view, taken from an alley on axis with the Courthouse.

I also had a chance to go inside and take a shot of the center of the building.  Unfortunately, they have placed the Christmas Tree in the exact center and they have the area barricaded.  I could not take a direct photo looking up.  However, I will say one thing, the center of the building is absolutely fantastic.

A couple of blocks south of the Courthouse is the restored Liberty Hotel.  They have a nice neon sign on the corner of the building.

Finally, the old Cleburne High School was converted into a courthouse annex.  The building was designed by Sanguinet & Staats and it opened in 1918.  Does this sound familiar?  It was the same architect and year as Trimble Technical High School was built in Fort Worth.

Lovely photos, John. Cleburne has a very underutilized downtown.

Thank you, Austin.  I have relatives who live there and I get down to see them every so often on weekends.  My mother actually graduated high school from the building that has now been converted into a Justice Center.   I normally don't down there on weekdays when everything is open. 

 

Cleburne has a relatively large downtown for a city of its size.  Even though it may be underutilized, I noticed that there weren't a lot of vacancies, which is good.

Eddie Vanston, who restored several historic buildings in the Near Southside, has begun working on some of the buildings in downtown Cleburne. His current project is old Dickson Furniture store. 12 apartments on floors 2 and 3 and ground floor retail.

I thought I might have a photograph that I took of the building, but the last time I was there taking pictures, I only took shots of the Courthouse and the buildings right on the square.
