A moveable jail cell has made the Preservation Texas annual list of the state's most endangered historic places.

The nonprofit group announced the sites during a preservation meeting Friday in Austin. The incarceration unit served as the Hays County Jail in Kyle where it remained in use until 1925. The cell is currently in San Marcos.

Other sites are the Kaufman County Poor Farm in Kaufman, the Lewis Railroad Hotel in San Augustine, the Magnolia Hotel in Seguin, the Panhandle Inn in Panhandle, the William Pfluger House in Pflugerville and the Ritz Theatre in Corpus Christi.

The list also includes the Spettel Riverside House in Lakehills and Union Missionary Baptist Church in Jefferson.

Preservation Texas Inc. is a partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
