Temecula, California: Old Temucula Jail

Two-story granite structure -- may have never been a jail, bars notwithstanding. Used as storage room, wine cellar, and perhaps a place to chill rowdy drunks from adjacent saloon. Houses two perpetually hungover dummies.

Old Temucula Jail

The old jail is a little tricky to find, because it's in the middle of a block. I got to it via an alleyway on Main Street, past some stores, around a couple of corners, and into a courtyard area.
