Crime and Punishment Museum

This small museum is housed in an old brick building that used to be the sheriff's home and office (downstairs) and jail (upstairs). Includes historical artifacts such as a ball from a chain-gang ball-and-chain, old handcuffs, replica electric chair, and other stuff. Also has a gallows with trap door. I guess that would be both up and down stairs.
