Public Hanging on Cotton Square in Lufkin about 1900, when Texas counties carried out their own executions. Crowds came to witness these events. Many dads made young sons watch, hoping it would keep them on a lawful path in life.
First brick fire station built in Lufkin about 1902. Located on Cotton (Calder) Square. City Hall housed on top floor. A small part of the "Stand Pipe" ( town water tower) can be seen above and at rear of the building.
