First Callahan County Jail
This building was built in Belle Plaine, the original County Seat of Callahan County, Texas. An election resulted in moving the County Seat to Baird, and the building was dismantled and reassembled in Baird. Although designated an historic site by the State of Texas, the building has been neglected and is not promoted as a tourist attraction. The two exterior doors appear to be interior doors, not designed for external security.
