Palestine, Texas, established in 1846 with a courthouse square, soon became full of life and death. The strange triangular lot on which this jail sits was a full block in the mid-1800s. Over the past 179 years, death has come in many ways. Examples include men having a classic Western shoot-out, hangings, and those contained behind steel bars to pay retribution for their crimes.

The earliest known structure here was the log home of Mrs. Ann White, a widow who looked after the children of widowed Dr. E.J. DeBard. Later, it was the home of Jasper Starr, an early Palestine newspaper editor. With the rapid growth of Palestine in the 1870s, a new jail became necessary. In 1880, the Second Anderson County Jail was constructed.

In 1931, the Third Historic Anderson County Jail remained at 704 Ave A and was built on the previous Jail’s foundation. This three-story art deco building stands on a site that housed criminals for 135 years.

This “Texas Jail House” is home to the ghosts of the guilty (And possibly innocent!).
