Morgan County Dungeon

Stone dungeon used during the 1830s to hold prisoners convicted of larceny, rioting, and, yes, adultery.

[Benjamin, 08/16/2019]

The dungeon is 11 feet high and 12 feet long, but only five feet wide. It was forgotten for over a hundred years, and only rediscovered in 1964 when the jail above it was torn down.
