Historic Texas Courthouses in Popular Movies

Temperatures are dropping, and it’s dark by 5:30 pm. It’s the perfect time of year to curl up on the couch with snacks and hot chocolate and catch up on classic movies. (Don’t forget to exercise between those movies, though!) Being a lover of history, I enjoy finding cool old buildings in my favorite films, and Texas courthouses are an underappreciated part of popular movie productions. These buildings offer a glimpse into the wild, quirky past of my home state, and they are also great examples various architecture styles. I’m going to show them a little love here as I walk through some of my favorite wintertime movies.
