Hico City Hall

Believed to be the oldest continually functioning city hall in Texas, Hico City Hall was built in 1903. It has a vault with a safe built in the 1850's that had been purchased by the City from town founder Dr. John R. Alford for $100. A full renovation of City Hall, made possible by the generosity of local benefactor, the late Pete Jenkins, was completed in 2010.
