“Love this historic site”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I have visited the Goal a few times. I really enjoyed the self tour as I could take as little or as long as I wished. I enjoyed learning about some of our past laws and what people were jailed for. A very interesting stop!

A unique experience that visitors and residents alike should see. The artifacts bring history alive! It certainly takes you back in time and make you thankful that you never have to spend the night! I love touring the Jail!

“A piece of history”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Wow what a great piece of history. As you wonder through the jail you read about the former residents. You see the kitchen, the doctors office and the cells where among others Steven Truscott was housed.
