About one and a half miles East-North-East of here is Texas' Polunsky Unit (http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/stat/unitdirectory/tl.htm). It's a supermax prison, the location of death row where all inmates are housed awaiting execution. Executions are not conducted here, they're performed in the "walls" unit in Huntsville, Texas. Huntsville is about 40 miles from here.

When I was a child, our farm was about two miles East-North-East of here. It was roughly across the road from where the prison is today and we leased the land the prison is on to grow cotton. Four families lived on our farm and worked about 400 acres of cotton.
