Stephenville Volksmarch Event

We met up with Aaron and Kerwin. We’re ready to begin the walk.

The walk went into City Park.

Which was also the staging area for the 4th of July Parade. So we walked by the parade.

We walked past the Erath County Courthouse, the work of noted
architect J. Riely Gordon. It is a beautiful example of Romanesque
Revival design. This is the county’s third courthouse and it was
completed in 1892. It had restoration done in 2002.

Built in 1889 to house the city’s first bank, this building
features elaborate stonework and large arches typical of Romanesque
Revival architecture and a Queen Anne style tower.

We passed this pretty mural.

One of several cowboy memorials in the sidewalk on Columbia Street.
