2-story stone ruin still stands tall on this desert landscape

This 1911 stone building is what remains of the Stiles Courthouse located in the ghost town of Stiles, Texas. Just north of Big Lake, Texas and off Hwy 137, an unpaved rough road loops around the ghostly ruins of this building. The Stiles courthouse was set fire twice by the same vandal (Ralph Denton) in the 1990's.
