The third Grimes County Jail, which stood from 1897-1956, is shown here around the turn of the century.  It was constructed by the Dubose Safe Company.  There are no known photos of the first jail, a wooden structure built in 1853 which measured 15’x24’ or the second jail, a stone structure built in 1879.

The Grimes County Jail as it stood in the early 1950s.  An added porch is visible on the front left side of the building.  This was the entrance to the private residence provided for the elected Sheriff.

Grimes County Jail c.1960s

The fourth Grimes County Jail is shown here in the 1960s.  This jail, over time, had additional cells built onto the back of it and remained operational until 1998.  It was destroyed by a fire in 1999, while being renovated for use as county offices and storage space.  The building, shown on the left, was the private residence provided for the elected Sheriff.  This structure remained the Sheriff’s residence until 1988 when it was converted into the Sheriff’s Office.  Today, the building houses the Grimes County District Attorney’s Office.
