About the event

The Historic Old Jail, which sits at 117 W. San Antonio Street, is the fourth Gillespie County Jail. Built in 1885, it replaced the previous jail which burned the same year. The last inmate of the Historic Old Jail was transported to the fifth Gillespie County jail, located in the third Gillespie County courthouse upon its completion on August 10, 1939. Today, the Historic Old Jail is owned and maintained by Gillespie County, under the care of the Gillespie County Commissioners. The Gillespie County Historical Society provides public access and interpretation of the building.
