    Cleburne and Johnson County

    by Basaic Written Jul 11, 2012

    The town was established in 1854 along the Chisholm Trail and was originally called Camp Henderson. The town was renamed Cleburne after Confederate General Patrick R. Cleburne in 1867. The county was named after Texas Confederate Colonel Middleton T. Johnson. The first courthouse here was moved from the town of Buchanan (the former county seat) in 1867. That courthouse was replaced in 1883 by a larger courthouse designed by W. C. Dodson using the Second Empire style of architecture (part of which is on display on the courthouse grounds). The current courthouse was built in 1912 by architects Lang & Witchell, using the Prairie School style of architecture. The design is dominated by the six story clock tower.
