This old-time jail sits directly across the street from the 1882 courthouse.  Like the historic courthouse, this is an another example of the solid and sturdy presence a building built of hill country limestone provides.  It was built in 1885 and served as the county’s jail until 1939.

    Just wondering if the old jail houses a museum? And if so, what kind? County history, pioneer, law enforcement?

      I don’t remember it housing anything. The old courthouse is now a library, and I believe part of it serves as ssome type of museum.
