VICTORIA, Texas – On Wednesday, May 5, the 1892 court house opened up again for public tours.

It’s a great place to learn about the city’s history with many photos of important past leaders, city maps, intricate décor.

The court house still has original furniture and other great artifacts.

Ben Zeller, County Judge, referred to it as Victoria’s most prized public and historic building.

“We’re very excited to be offering these public tours. One of the reasons why we offer these in a way that we’re doing it is because various civic groups and schools and organizations have always done tours throughout the years. But it’s never really been available to the public at large, so we figured that now is a good a time, as any. The building itself is absolutely amazing, 1892,” Zeller said.

Many attendees felt eager during the tour, as it will be available for community viewing again.
