County Court House
Limestone County was formed from Robertson County on
April 11, 1846, with Springfield, population 120, as the county seat.
The organization of the county was completed on August 18, 1846, with
the election of county officials. Limestone County originally included
all the land between the Brazos and Trinity Rivers on the east and
west, and the land north of Robertson County to Navarro County.
In 1848 part of northern and western Limestone
County was taken to form McLennan and Falls counties, and in 1850 part
of the eastern section was taken to form part of Freestone County. The
boundaries were changed to their present form on November 2, 1866. In
1873, the courthouse burned and after the Houston and Texas Central
Railway bypassed Springfield, an election was ordered and Groesbeck
became the county seat.
