Old City Jail
1908 - 1910

This is a nice place to visit, but you don't want to stay here (especially in the winter, its cold).

This jail was used to house local miscreants, usuallydrunk and disorderly. Many time it held multiple guests. It usually had one chair, one bed, and some blankets.

Construction is of old style cinder blocks, plastered over with cement. The foundation extends several feet below ground to discourage premature release.

It is not believed any of the famous outlaws stayed here, although a few were known to be in the area, Bonnie and Clyde, among others.

We're working on making this a great little museum. Donations of knowledge of this area, artifacts, etc. will be appreciated. In the meantime, cowboy hats only $7 across the street.
