Restorations on the Bastrop County Courthouse clock tower will be complete in mid-May after work on the project began in November.

By the numbers

Bastrop County received a $250,000 grant from the National Park Service for restorations. The grant was part of the Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, And Maria Emergency Supplemental Historic Preservation Fund.

A closer look

Restoration work includes the repair and replacement of rough carpentry and sheet metal. The clock face and mechanics will be restored. An electric strike for the bell will also be installed.

The Bastrop County Courthouse was built in 1883, and the site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
