World's Smallest Police Station

Very tiny. New station built right next door is also extremely small. Bonus: Entire street is quaint, charming and full of history.

The New Police Station.

World's Smallest Police Station

The new police station is right next door (not much bigger) and you can see the "emergency phone booth" outside its doors -- just in case the station is not manned....

Smallest Police Station.

World's Smallest Police Station

On US 21, in the small town of Ridgeway, you will see the World's Smallest Police Station. This little hut is about the size of a home bathroom and was last used for service in 1990. It is truly unique to look at. Just beside it is the new police station. It is twice as large as it's predecessor but still very small.
