World's Smallest Police Station

This is such a quirky little stop in this off-the-beaten track town!

World's Smallest Police Station

Back when the town of Carrabelle (current pop. about 1200) had no true police station, the police parked their cruiser beside a telephone booth near the main intersection, where they could pretty much see everything going on. For many years, calls for the police came in to the telephone in the booth.

Better radios and cell phone service put an end to the need for the phone booth, but one of the more recent of the telephone booths used is still in the center of town, across from the Chamber of Commerce. The original phone booth is on display at City Hall just a couple short blocks away.
