THE STORY:

More than one hundred vivid stained glass windows, or lunettes (French for “little moon”), originally hung in the upper windows of Old Red. From 1892 through 1967, these lunettes were the highlight of the Dallas County Courthouse,adding even more grandeur to the stately Richardson Romanesque structure. In 1967, during a major renovation of the building, the lunettes were removed. The beautiful and colorful stained glass lunette panes were disposed of, regarded as garbage, or given away. Two original lunettes were recovered during Old Red’s restoration in 2004. Today, one of the original lunette hangs in the Hatton W. Sumners Restored Courtroom, in an east window.


Help Fund our Lunette Project!
Your donations will allow us to replace the half-moon windows throughout Old Red with the beautiful stained glass lunettes that originally graced the building. Recreating and installing each lunette will cost between $2500 and $5000, depending upon the size and placement in the building.
