Built in 1897, the old Eastland County Jail contains many artifacts and memorabilia of Eastland County and Law Enforcement history. The jail once housed one of the infamous Santa Claus Bank Robbers in 1927 and is the site of the last public lynching in the State of Texas. Across the street from the County Jail and on the corner, sits a stone marker telling of the timeline and events that led up to the lynching.
