One of the historic attractions you can see in Mariposa is the County's Old Stone Jail on Bullion Street. What you will find is a single floor jailhouse constructed in 1858 during the mining era. The jailhouse is made of granite stones quarried from nearby Mormon Bar. You can…
Just an ol' country jail. You can feel the history surrounding the walls. Easy to get to, right there in town. Just suits Mariposa
A gal at the History Center recommended to see the jail and courthouse in Mariposa. Was good for a photo op and little else. Not much history to see in this area.
I have never seen it open. I have been to the town many times and the building is there, but you are not allowed in to see it. There are no grounds to walk or anything to see. What you see in the picture is all you see.
It was pretty cool to see and read the info on the building. It took like two minutes and then we were off to the next adventure.
