GEORGETOWN, Texas — It's the time of year when scary stories and creepy costumes are on plenty of people's minds. As hundreds flock to haunted houses across Central Texas this fall, one spot has some real history behind it.
The Old Williamson County Jail housed inmates from 1889 to 1990. But some say – even now – inmates are sticking around.
But while setting up those props, some volunteers at the jail have said they've seen things they just can't explain.
"They've had experiences where the radio station all of the sudden changes or they start hearing things, or water bottles getting thrown across the room without anybody else being there," said Patricia Gutierrez with the sheriff’s office.
All the proceeds from the haunted jail go to the sheriff's office's Brown Santa program, which buys presents for kids in need around the holidays.
If you want to check out the jail for yourself, it's open on Friday night and Saturday night, and then again next Friday and Saturday night.
