    This building is still very much extant. I was just in it last week (April 24, 2017)

    32.346068, -97.387355 is a better GPS Location

  3. Y daughter’s doing research on this building and can not find the reason or date this building was closed down. Can you help?

  4. Wasn’t this the building also used to house juvenile’s in the 1980’s and 1990’s? I was arrested when I was 12 for running away, spent the night in a dark holding cell that scared the crap out of me. Pretty heavy thing to do to a 12 year old kid. I still sleep with my lights on to this day.
