I lived less than two blocks south of here for several years right after the old courthouse burned. I haven't been back for several years. Is the marker still on the ground (the center of the county) over north west of the jail, where the courthouse stood? I am guessing the chain link fences are all gone. There was talk 20 years ago about making the jail a historical center, but governments in Bowie county don't have much time for that. There was hushed applause when the courthouse (mysteriously) burned and the county netted a fairly large insurance settlement.
Here you go J.R.
Breaking and entering should have gotten you in.
Of course, if you carry a dead AA from your camera along with one of those little salt packets you get at Wendy's, you could get into the County Jail for a salt and battery.
Thank you Bill . I didn't actually get in , although I would have loved to. The glass is broken out of most of the windows so I was able to get my camera in through the bars for a couple of shots.
Awesome pics. Should I ask how you got in? ;-)
