The Hill County “Cell Block” Museum, located one block north of the Courthouse in the old county jail house (1893 – 1983), was awarded a Texas Historical Marker in 1981 and is entered in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Museum was the old county jail, completed in 1893. The architect was W.C. Dodson, who also designed the Hill County Courthouse. The jail was built by Lovell & Hood at a cost of $26,220. The front part of the building served as living quarters for the sheriff’s family, and the rear housed the cell blocks, kitchen facilities, and sheriff’s office. Prisoners were kept here until April of 1983, at which time the Hill County Historical Commission obtained the “old jail” to restore and use as a county museum.

Our Traditional Crafts Village showcases a community of craftsmen who have returned, not to the past, but to the enduring values exemplified in hand-craftsmanship. True craft requires more than skill: it expresses the craftsmen’s care and concern, their personal investment in everything they do. You can visit the shops of our crafts village, watch our craftsmen work, even attend classes to learn craft skills and, in all this, experience with our craftsmen the joy and fulfillment of returning to craft, the art of work.
