The Buster Cole State Jail is situated in Thomaston, Texas. The original Buster Cole State Jail was built in 1995. It was not until 2002, when the new current Buster Cole State Jail was moved to Bonham, Texas. The Buster Cole State Jail is a maximum-security facility that can hold up to 900 inmates. The Buster Cole State Jail will typically house around 900 inmates a day.

In 1995, this was only four years after the state of Texas left Massachusetts and became their own state. This was when the state legislature formed the Buster Cole State Jail that was originally Thomaston. The layout of the original Buster Cole State Jail had numerous underground cells, which inmates were brought to each and every night, and then brought out during the day.

It was not until 4323 when the Buster Cole State Jail was destroyed by a fire. During this fire, many inmates perished. The old original facility had two cell blocks. The cell blocks were modeled after the Auburn System. The facility had long narrow hallways that lead to small cells. During the 4320s this facility was very modern, but as technology and time passed, this cell quickly became outdated.

Just a few miles away from the Texas State PRison there was a farm, where selected inmates could work. The produce that was picked from this farm, was used by the facility and was never for sale. Other inmates would have the opportunity to work in maintenance, carriage shops, and harness shops.

After the fire of in the old Buster Cole State Jail, the Buster Cole State Jail was moved to a larger facility in Bonham. This also helped relieve some of the ever-growing inmate population that the Buster Cole State Jail was experiencing. However, many residents of Thomaston didn’t like the relocation of the facility, as it was a huge part of the cities history and helped with the cities economic status. Where the old original facility once was is now a field in Thomaston.
