Ceremonies were held Sunday night to unveil the renovated statue, with a sword in one hand and scales in the other, atop a globe as part of the J.L. Mott Fountain.
The return of the statue and fountain is part of a $2.6 million courthouse complex restoration project involving the Hidalgo Foundation.
Bexar County bought the statue and fountain from J.L. Mott of New York in 1896, but offered the display to San Antonio in 1927 to make room for a courthouse expansion.
Vandals in 1997 damaged the original Lady Justice statue and the fountain.
Restoration was led by sculptor Gilbert Barrera, who says that in Greek mythology, "bareness and naturalness were a sign of purity, goodness and justice."
