Old Corsicana Jail House.  The jail was built in 1892 located north of the County courthouse. Note the guard tower on the left. It was apparently removed a short time latter because it doesn't appear in latter photos. Note the tower of the 3rd Ward School to the left of the Jail. That third floor section in the middle is an enclosed gallowses.


A later photo of the old jail.  Note the tower is missing in this view.
