Explore a circa 1891 Victorian Era conjoined jail and sheriff's home, one of a few known to exist today.  Tour the old jail cells with the original locking mechanism, and see the graffiti left on the cell walls by former prisoners. See the padded cell used for the "hard to handle" prisoners. The old gallows yard is adjacant to the jail. Volunteer guides will accompany you during your tour of the old jail, where you will also be shown the segregated areas for jailed men and women and hear the stories about the resident ghost Essie.
