Historic Calaboose

Our Historic Calaboose was built between 1911 and 1921. It was used for less dangerous offenders and others who were taken to Dallas to be incarcerated. Unfortunately, the Jail sits below surrounding terrain and is prone to flooding. It has been deteriorating for years and needs major repair work done before its total collapse. Repair requires the help of engineering experts and there are major costs involved with research and restoration.
