Sanborn Maps

Introduction

The majority of Sanborn maps used for this project were utilized via the Perry-Casteñada online collection See Methods under “The Project” on the Home Page for a discussion of these maps. Maps not available online are housed at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.  A small number of Sanborn maps were stored at some libraries and museums.  The Rice Fondren Library on the main campus of Rice University in Houston has a complete set of all Sanborn maps published but I have not examined them at this time.

Most of the small one-story jails on the Sanborn maps are referred to as a calaboose.  Other names such as jail, county jail, and lockup are also used but rarely.  Although my definition of a calaboose for this project is a one-story building, there are a few exceptions.  Some two-story jails clearly state that one floor is a calaboose.  For that reason, I have included them here.  The years highlighted in red signify the year that a calaboose or possible calaboose was present in that town.  The remaining years refer to Sanborn maps that have been examined and no calaboose was found.
