One of the landmarks of downtown Dallas is the unusual design of the Old Red Courthouse.
It was built in 1892 of rough-cut, red pecos sandstone and trimmed in Arkansas blue granite.
This was the 5th courthouse built on this
site and today you can find the Vicitor Information Centre on the ground level.
There is a high tech Internet Café housed in one of the turrets. The building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a City of Dallas Landmark and a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark.
