Bosque County Courthouse Addition – Meridian TX

Description

In 1935, the Meridian Tribune reported that a “contract for re-modeling the Bosque county courthouse [in Meridian, TX] and constructing a one-story addition was awarded … to O.K. Johnson, Waco contractor, for $44,113.00.”

In 1934, the clock tower and hipped roofs were replaced with a flat concrete roof as a result of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) project. That renovation also resulted in a one-story addition to the west side of the courthouse.

A restoration project in 2005-2007 removed the addition and restored the clock tower and roof to give the courthouse back its former Gothic style.
