The Strange Story of the Bandera County Courthouse Plans

The 1890 Bandera County Courthouse

For many years, the design of the 1890 Bandera County Courthouse was attributed to Benjamin Franklin Trester, who reportedly sold the plans to the county for $5. Even the historic marker on the building says that was the case! However, it seems that Trester didn’t design the building after all – watch the video below to find out more, and also learn about a group of early Bandera County settlers!

(The video is a recording of an Instragram Live video, so that’s why it’s vertical. Remember, all good and decent people dislike vertical video.)
