• Comanche County Courthouses In 2013

    What we call Old Cora today was actually simply called the courthouse from 1856-1859, just a log cabin that wasn’t being used by its former owner, the Baggett family. The log structure stood in what became the first county seat of Comanche County, the little settlement of Cora.

    The county seat of Comanche County was moved to the newly formed town of Comanche, Texas in 1859, with the first business conducted there in July of 1859. At that time, the new courthouse was a picket-style courthouse that probably sat right in the middle of what today would be Houston Street, just west of Star Beau’s Restaurant.

    Comanche went through several courthouses, including a gorgeous old Victorian, before WPA workers erected the current structure.
