I returned last night from documenting several calabooses. Information will be posted for one in Mineola (Wood County), Linden (Cass County), Dangerfield (Morris County), Emory (Wood County), and Hughes Springs (Cass County).
Today, I met with Audrey Rother at the local museum in McDade, Texas. She showed me the key to the old calaboose that is no longer standing. She also showed me a picture of the calaboose that used to be in nearby Paige. I will be discussing these under Calabooses (Vanished) later.
Another stroke of luck. As I was going through old folders and organizing my calaboose letters and other papers I ran across a brochure about historic McDade in Bastrop County. I called one of the members of the historical society and was told that there was a calaboose in McDade and Paige. Thanks to Audrey Rother for her help.
