McCULLOCH COUNTY JAIL

Constructed in 1909-10, this was the second building to serve as the McCulloch County Jail. This red brick Romanesque Revival style edifice was built by the Southern Structural Steel Co. of San Antonio. Sheriff T.L. Sansom was the first occupant of the first floor jailer's quarters. The second and third floors contained prisoners' cells. When the county erected a new facility in 1974, the Heart of Texas Historical Museum, Inc., acquired this structure.
