Tiny Jail in City Park

A tiny, historic jail stands amidst the usual modern playground equipment in a city park. The doors are open for visitors to explore at their leisure, although cells no longer lock. The jailhouse is comprised of two tiny cells, apparently used for drunkards during Prohibition. A great little gem to stumble upon!

[Molly Sanford, 05/15/2016]

The jail held lawbreakers from 1922 to 1961.
