Mission and Vision

Our mission is to conserve and preserve the historic Kendall County Historic Jail building as a home for heritage artifacts of Kendall County with a focus on law enforcement.


The Kendall County Historic Jail was constructed in 1887 and served for a century as the county jail. In recent years, the Friends of the Kendall County Historic Jail (FKCHJ) have painstakingly restored the space, bringing it back to life as a one-of-a-kind museum of Kendall County history.

We envision the Kendall County Historic Jail as the center of Kendall County historic preservation and promotion. We strive to fulfill our mission through, but not limited to:
1) Conservation and preservation of the historic jail building and grounds.
2) Public educational forums and exhibits on the history of Kendall County, along with the story of local law enforcement and its ties to Texas law enforcement.
3) Displays and programs that convey to visitors and residents the contributions of the greater Kendall County area to Texas history.

We’re artists, city employees, business owners, and just your every-day friends and neighbors who share a real love for our community and its history. Care to join us?
