Inscription
Texas Rangers came to Boomtown Borger in 1929, to clean out the town of corruption, bootlegging, and prostitution, Prisoners were chained together and secured to a log such as this one. This crude jail was used to hold them until their day in court or they could be escorted out of town.
This redwood log was used to plug an abandoned well in 1929. The log was removed in 1999 by DJ's Oil Well Service.

Jail maintained by Borger Police Department   Log Donated by Clovis Boren
