Left: The Hopkins County Courthouse on the east side of the square in Sulphur Springs, the county seat, as it stands today. It was made a Texas landmark in 1975. It was designed by James Riely Gordon, a Richardsonian, Romansque style of red granite and contrasting sandstone trim. The romanticized Mooring design has been a challenging subject for many artists. The courthose was completed on August 22nd 1895. It replaced the old courthouse which burned in 1894. For a more complete history of the courthouse see

Old Saltillo United Methodist Churxh and cemetery today, about 2 miles south of Saltillo. The community that use to be here was called "Twin Groceries." It was located on the Jefferson Highway, a teamsters wagon trail that ran from Jefferson, Texas to Dallas. The community shifted to the present Saltillo (which was first called "Switch") when the railroad was built in 1887 and the post office was moved there in 1889.
