Almost missed this gem. It's a little outside of town (because that's where they wanted it!) - looks like an old hotel (on purpose). The volunteers are all in costume and stay in character (Clyde - you ROCK!). Very very fun AND educational. My 10 yr old loved it almost as much as we did. Nice to see so many... More

There is actually more than just the Old Jail in this location. It is definetly a place to see there is a area that is free but the actual tour cost a little. This is also a place to purchase other tours of the area.

The jail tour was interesting and fun, i only wish they didnt charge for it. It lasted a total of 10 min and although our tour guide was fun i think spending money on a small quick tour is a bit of a rip off. Glad we did it though.

This was not in my list of to do's and since the old time trolley free parking spot is here we toured it but I'm glad we did it. Very informative part to start our exploration of the ancient city. My daughter liked it even and she's 6. Our tour guide was very friendly and even made remarks to compare... More

Did the tour of the jail. Deputy Clyde gave us the tour. He was very entertaining and real convincing as a deputy. Fun experience.

I've been to the jail 3 times. The tours are excellent and if you get lucky the sheriff will be there. He's an excellent actor and an awesome tour guide.

Very good tour. Interesting old jail. Amazing that this jail was used until the 1940s. Fun taking pictures in the cells.
