Quanah: Hardeman County Jail Museum

The two-story Hardeman County jail, a recorded Texas Historical Landmark, was built in 1890, when the city of Quanah became the county seat. The museum, on the lower floor, features the history of Quanah and Hardeman County; the upper-floor cells have been left intact.

The museum is jointly operated with the Quanah, Acme and Pacific Depot Musuem at 102 Mercer Street, Quanah, by the Hardeman County Historical Museum & Historical Society.
