This historic jailhouse served the city of Georgetown between its construction in 1875 its closure in 1889. Due to overcrowding, a new facility was completed in 1889. The closure was also inspired by several jailbreaks, and prisoners were transported to the Travis County Jail in 1888 rather than await the completion of the new jail.
