"Old Rip" the Horned Toad

According to legend, a Texas horned lizard was sealed in the cornerstone of the courthouse in 1897. When a new courthouse was erected in 1928, the cornerstone was opened and the horned toad was found alive. When it died the next year, it was placed in a glass-front casket, on view in the present county courthouse.
