Old Log Jail Exhibit

Old Log JailThe museum houses the oldest building in Coryell County:  a double-walled log jail built in 1854 so that, in the words of County Judge Mayberry, "Coryell County can come into the modern age and stop chaining its prisoners to trees around the courthouse for varmints to chew on at night."

This unique structure features rare double-notched logs with double-walled construction.
