The Grimes County Courthouse was built in 1891 and remains a working courthouse today. It famously hosted the trial of a Barrow-Parker gang member in the 1930s. The building, restored in 2002, has stood through two fires in its history. Aside from being a landmark for Grimes County, the structure is also noted for its unique location. The building actually sits in the center of Main Street in Anderson, Texas.
