Description: Photograph of Henderson County Courthouse in Athens, TX. A multi-lane road runs across the bottom of the photo, separated from a parking lot by a yellow curb. A single car sits in the parking lot in front of a sidewalk lined with parking meters. Beyond the sidewalk is the yellow lawn of the courthouse, occupied by tall leafless trees and short bushes. In the right side of the photo, four people stand around a tall bush while facing the courthouse. A concrete walkway in the left side of the photo leads from the edge of the parking lot to the set of stairs leading to the building's front doors. The entrance of the courthouse includes two glass doors set into white frames with a small triangular pediment above them while a larger pediment sits above all three of the building's floors, affixed to the edge of the courthouse's flat roof. Four white columns support the large pediment, two on either side of the front doors, and rest on white rectangular bases. The section of the building that the pediment and front doors are attached to has two additional sections diagonally connected to it, one of the left and one on the right. Across all three sections are three rows of windows divided vertically by dark red bricks, The rest of the building, including the roof's edge, it white. A dark chimney sits on the roof, seen to the left of the large pediment above the building's entrance. To the right of the large pediment, a gold dome with a pole rising from its top sits on the roof.
