Second Fisher County Courthouse, Roby -  Built in 1910, the Classic Revival Style Building was designed by architect Andrew J. Bryan. This 2 1/2 story brick structure had an unusual building footprint and a grand temple entry portico supported by four giant order Ionic columns. The dome was removed in 1953.  The building was used until the current courthouse opened in 1972.

According to TexasEscapes.com, when the courthouse was no longer in use, building was cut in half and both sections sold and used for houses.
