Old Lavaca County Jail
Old Lavaca County Jail was the second oldest operating jail in Texas. It was built in 1885, and didn’t slam that last jail cell shut and close its doors until 2005.
Hallettsville, Texas is the home of this prison where justice was served quickly. “There was a gallow in the yard adjacent to the jail where they did public hangings,” property manager Debra Fawcett said during an interview. With the hangings and recorded suicides in the prison, no wonder it is one of the most haunted prisons in the US.
Claims in this prison rage from slamming prison doors, conversations coming from nowhere, shadows, whispers, and physical contact.
If you are ever in Hallettsville stop on by. It might just be for a good cause.
