The Williamson County Courthouse in Georgetown, Texas has recently been restored and guided free tours will be offered in March continuing through December courtesy of the Williamson Museum.

The large neoclassical structure can be seen for miles and serves as a focal point within the business district. It is actually the fifth structure to serve as the courthouse for the city. Designed by C. H. Page, an architect from Austin, the building incorporates Ionic columns, balustrade detailing, and classic pediment. The balustrade and pediments were removed in 1965, and the structure is now restored in original splendor.

The renovation was a $9m restoration was completed in 2007 by the Williamson County and Texas Historical Commission.

Museums and historical attractions frequently use catalogs to promote their features. Catalog printing is a useful method for including information, event schedules, sponsors, and advertisers. Advertising is often used to offset the cost of the catalog or to generate revenue streams.

The tours will begin on March 14 and be available 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, and 3:30 p.m. each Friday and Saturday through mid-December. Guests should plan to arrive at the museum a few minutes prior to the scheduled tour. The location is 716 South Austin Avenue, and the museum is across the street from the Courthouse.
