Historic Coryell County Jail


see Coryell County Courthouse

Interesting building  located catty-corner from the courthouse.  Building was built in the 30’s by Johnson Construction company from Waco and designed by Birch Easterwood.  The interest in the building is in the entrances – there are two main entrances with one being denoted with the inscription “Jail” over the door. The eastern door is more ornate – bordering on Moorish & Regal.  The door marked as ‘Jail’ is more art deco in design.  The building is still in use – as a justice of the Peace court.  The current jail sits behind and attached to this building.
