Somervell County was first formed in 1875 and was named for Alexander Somervell a Texas soldier, statesman and pioneer. Court was first held in one of the local stores. This fine courthouse was built in 1893 using Native Limestone and the Late Victorian style of architecture. It was recently restored with an eye toward preserving the courthouse as close as possible to original.
Barnard's mill was established along the banks of the Paluxy River in 1860. It operated for years as a unique and efficient grist mill. Next door a "healing waters clinic" was established in 1941; then the whole thing became a hospital. Today it has been restored and is an interesting museum. The facility also serves as the towns art museum and when I visited had a nice collection of local art.
There is a nice memorial to area veterans on the courthouse grounds.
