In May of 2019, it still wasn’t clear to me that visiting all 254 county courthouses across Texas was more than a long term aspiration that might or might not come to fruition. Mainly, I was just eager to get back in the saddle and ride. It was good therapy.
On May 12, I rode south to San Marcos (Hays County), New Braunfels (Comal County), Seguin (Guadalupe County), and Lockhart (Caldwell County). I ate lunch at Black’s Barbecue in Lockhart.
On May 26, I went further south and west. I had already visited Johnson City, the seat of Blanco County. But the original seat of Blanco County was in Blanco. The Old Blanco County Courthouse below was built in 1885, so was in use for only five years before the county seat moved to Johnson City in 1890. This happens to be the same photo used on my home page.
I continued on to Boerne (Kendall County), where I ate lunch at Hungry Horse Restaurant.
It was difficult to find a safe/legal spot to get the photo of the Bexar County Courthouse in San Antonio, so I was in a hurry to snap this one. Only later did I realize I cut the very top off! Another one that I’ll need to retake some day. This was a beautiful day of riding.
