Architecturally interesting. Look of the old west. Lots of details in design. In the town center, roads all around. Colors bright.

The courthouse is such a beautiful building and stands out as a work of art! It is so unique! I visited it a couple years ago and had the chance to see it again yesterday while in Victoria. The architecture design is simply a masterpiece!
