There are few things to see in Texola, mostly the abandoned, crumbling buildings around town. One such building is the one room jail. The tiny cinderblock jail was built a the end of the 1800s. As its name states, this Route 66 roadside attraction is pretty small, with just one room accessible by an iron-barred door. Marked out front is a slab dedicated to the Texola High School Class of 1938.

Look for this as you’re driving through Texola, along with an abandoned 1930 Magnolia Gas Station, Tumbleweed & Water Hole #2 Cafe, and a Will Rogers highway monument.
