Celebration Plaza was made on official Texas Landmark in 1975. The original courthouse along with the entire east side of the square burned in 1894. The current courthouse, made of fireproof, red Texas granite, was built the following year on the northeast corner of the public square. In 2000, a historic preservation grant funded the complete restoration of the courthouse with some modern conveniences, such as an elevator and central heat and air also added, as well.
