Jails in Texas – Find the information you need.

Jails were some of the first public buildings erected in Texas – occasionally built with the same bond issue money as county courthouses. After construction, however, they received minimal funds for modernization. Stories have been told of sympathetic sheriffs who would release prisoners because of leaking roofs. 

Texas’ landscape is dotted with these brick fortresses and grim crenelated castles – many of them still in use after more than 100 years. Medieval and primitive they may appear, but many housed the sheriff and his family as well as local miscreants and villains.
