Housed in the 1910 County Jail, the museum includes a hangman's trap used for a public execution in 1913. Prehistoric plants and animal fossils, native people and European colonization exhibits, and a steamboat replica are but a few of the fascinating displays to see at the Museum of South Texas History.
