LAST LOOK

Historic Shelby County Jail

The Shelby County Jail is an outstanding example of an 1880’s small town Texas county jail. It is a rarity among Texas jails of the 19th century precisely because it was designed at the same time as the county courthouse and by the same architect. The jail is now home to the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce. Photo by TAC County Relation Officer Alan Bristol. *
