The Llano County Courthouse, located in the middle of Llano's historic square, was built in 1893. It was designed in a Romanesque Revival style by A.O. Watson and Jacob Larmour, with an exterior made of sandstone, marble, and granite. The interior of the courthouse was damaged by fire in 1932 and again in 1951.
