Heart of Texas Museum

The Heart of Texas Historical Museum is housed in the old McCulloch County Jail. The jail was constructed in 1910 at a cost of $14,418.75. The three-story structure served as the countys correctional facility until 1974, when it was deeded to the Heart of Texas Historical Museum. Although never used, it contains a death cell which was converted to a security cell for more troublesome prisoners. The first floor consisted mainly of jailers quarters, with the top two floors housing prisoners.
