The Tarrant County Courthouse in Fort Worth was completed in 1895. It is the sixth courthouse building to serve the citizens of Tarrant County. Built in a Renaissance Revival/Beaux-Arts style out of Texas pink granite, it was designed by Kansas City architects Frederick C. Gunn and Louis S. Curtiss. This monumental courthouse, with a height measuring 194 feet, is often compared to the Texas Capitol building. The cost was $408,840 and citizens considered it such a public extravagance that a new County Commissioners' Court was elected in 1894.
The building was restored in 1983 and is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark.
