Geocache Description:


Historical Marker Text
Briscoe County Jail
Built 1894 of handcut stone hauled here by horse-drawn wagons from Tule Canyon. Early day sheriff's families rented it as residence. Lower floor was used by Red Cross workers, for sewing, during World War I. This jail stands as the lasting reminder of what courage and dedication mean in preserving law, order and integrity in Briscoe County.

There are more historical markers here too.

UPDATE: The cache is inside the jailhouse which is open to the public. The cache is on the north wall table and there is a guestbook on the desk.
