Tower may have been designed for hangings, but no gallows were ever installed. Though never filled to capacity, inmates have included the 1954 robbers of Ozona National Bank. In sheriff's quarters, Ozona children about 1915 took piano lessons from sheriff's wife. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, 1966.
