Silver Plume Jail

The hand-painted sign over the door says that the jail was built in 1875 and used until 1915. One of its prisoners was Jack McDonald, a Scots-Irish miner and previous owner of the 7:30 Mine.

[Lindsay Poma, 03/04/2016]

It isn't much bigger than a shed, but it does have a barred door and a helpful sign.
