An 1858 election called for Sabine County offices to be moved from Milam (7 Mi. N) to this more central location. The new county seat, Hemphill, was named for former Texas Supreme Court Justice John Hemphill. The first courthouse at this site burned in1 875 and was replaced by a larger frame structure. The present building was started in 1906 by N. A Dawson under the direction of James Barney Lewis. The top two floors were rebuilt following a fire in 1909 and a remodeling of the structure was completed in 1938 by the Works Progress Administration.
