Old Red Museum
The Old Red Museum is an outstanding feature of the Dallas County Historic Plaza. It was built in 1892 in Romanesque Revival style. It is constructed of rough-cut, red Pecos sandstone and trimmed in Arkansas blue granite. The courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a City of Dallas Landmark and a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark. Four prior courthouses have graced the same location. The Visitor Information Center is on the ground level and the high tech Internet Cafe is housed in one of the turrets.
Also don't miss the presentations in the theaters in each of the four "eras" of Dallas County History which cover periods from pre-history to 2007.
Inquire as to the possibility of visiting the Hatton W. Sumners Court Room on the Fourth Floor, restored to its original appearance.
Plan to spend several hours, especially if you take in all the theaters and all the touch-screen interactive displays.
The Old Red Courthouse originally built in 1890. As of May 15, 2007 has been fully restored, with at least one courtroom renovated to its original state, and the clock tower and grand stairway replaced.
Check out the Old Red Museum located on the 2nd floor. It is spectacular and a must see. Be sure to see the artifacts and the stories on the touchscreen monitors. They are great.
