Old Jailhouse




This is the old jailhouse here in my hometown. It's now a museum. This is actually the living quarters section, and the bars on the windows are on the other side of the building. After my dad died, my mom donated his old gun cabinet to the museum to hold the guns that they have on display. Dad used to tell a story about how he spent a few nights in there in his younger days (back in the late forties, early fifties)for fighting and carousing, don't know if he was teasing or not! :) They actually have a "hanging" bar in the middle of the jail where they used to do executions back in the early 1900's. About 20 years ago, before they restored it, there was a Halloween Haunted House in there - Mega Creepy!
