The crown jewel of Shelby County is nestled on the downtown square in Center, Texas. The 1885 historic Shelby County Courthouse has experienced a complete restoration. Styled after an Irish castle by architect J. J. E. Gibson, the Courthouse now serves as a Visitor's Center. From the Shelby County Museum to historic sites and markers, from spectacular landscapes on Toledo Bend Lake to wildlife areas in the national forest, Shelby County offers something for everyone. A walk around the Historic Downtown Center Square is a memorable one with a variety of shopping, art galleries, an antique shop with a quaint sandwich shop inside, and a restored, state-of-the-art movie theatre.
