Want To Buy A Jail?

A real honest to goodness jail is up for sale in Bell County. The old jail is now a residence located in downtown Belton.

Before it was a nice quaint home capable of sheltering a family from the elements, it housed some of the most notorious men in Bell County. The home at 210 N. Pearl with stained glass accents adorning the front entrance was originally a county jail when it was built in the 1800s. Source: Temple Daily Telegram

I had some friends who used to live there. It was kind of weird to stand in the living room and look through a small barred window into the kitchen. If nothing else, it's a sturdy structure.
