Alanreed Pioneer Jail & Post Office

Route 66 at W. 6th Ave., Alanreed, TX

East < GO > West

Standing next to the Alanreed Post Office, which is also a gas stationa and convenience store, is an old pioneer jail with a large "BEER" sign on it. Makes me wonder if the jail's motto was "Get Your Beer and Bunk Here!"


It's easy to miss the old jail because of the big beer sign stuck to the side, so this photo might help folks locate it easier. There is a small motel here too.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
