Ferguson Unit is a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison for men located in unincorporated Madison County, Texas. The 4,355 acres (1,762 ha) prison is located on Farm to Market Road 247, near Midway and 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Huntsville.
The unit was named after James E. Ferguson, a Governor of Texas. In 1935 Ferguson housed White and African American prisoners. The current Ferguson Unit opened in June 1962.
