Tioga Jail

29 Dec

Ten feed wide by twelve feet deep, this tiny jail is situated in the town of Tioga, about 60 miles north of Dallas. I’ve been through Tioga on the 377 a quadrillion times and numerous trips through town on Gene Autry. In these parts, many towns have a street named Gene Autry.

If you aren’t careful you would miss this piece of Texas history. Most people do because it is on a little residential street in a Town with a population of 850 people.

    There has to be a country song about that tiny jail somewhere 🙂

    Happy New Year, Anita!

    There probably is, Doug and it was likely written by Gene Autry.
