Just as a prison should be...... very grim. It is from the 1800’s and the prison guard lived upstairs. He did have a fireplace and probably a coal stove. The walls were three feet thick. It sits right by the park which hosts a gazebo and basketball courts for kids. Buckner

It just so happened that the jail happened to be open on the evening we were visiting Augusta, KY for the weekend. It's hard to believe that this old jail, with it's crude looking interior, was in use until 1976!

Oldest Jail in Ky, built in 1811. Very cool to get to walk into and actually sit in the cells where prisoners had to stay years ago! A lot of history in that building, if those walls could talk!
