History
Old Jail Bid by Pauley
The commissioners accepted Pauley's bid to build the jail. The jail is appraised at $5000 by B. F.
Oliveros for the county. It will be on J. W. Estes lot, 327 x 150 feet fronting on 3 streets, price
$2,500. It is within the city limits, west of San Marco Avenue. The County and St. Augustine are to be
congratulated on the wisdom of the commissioners. The Pauley Company will probably give all the
work other than steel and iron to the builders here.
Mr. Flagler gives $5,00 for the old lot without the
building and $10,000 toward the new jail.
