Warthen Old Jail

7616 Hwy. 15 N.
Warthen, GA 31094


Visit the oldest wooden jail in Georgia. Built of rough hand-hewn logs from local timber, this historical structure has withstood the test of time. The jail once held Aaron Burr on his journey to Richmond for trial. Located today on private property, this structure is nonetheless accessible and widely visited. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
