Retired San Augustine County Jail

go to San Augustine County Courthouse
go to San Augustine Town Square

I’ve tried to uncover the story on this building, without a whole lot of success.  I was able to find a very recent story that the Garden Club of San Augustine, has gone about developing a project to restore the old building.  It was built in 1919, and is called the N L Tindall building.  So I don’t know if it was built as a jail originally or taken over later by the Sherrif”s Department.  It did serve as the county jail up until 2000 – just don’t know when it started to serve as the jail.  Anyhow – the Garden Club of San Augustine must be one fantastic organization!  This same organization spearheaded the restoration of the county’s lovely 1927 courthouse next door.
