Our "prisoner" tour guide, Jack, had us in stitches throughout our visit in jail. Through all that joviality though, we were enlightened to the dark side of turn of the 20th century penal system.

We had a really great time during our tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We were able to explore on our own after the tour was over. It was appropriate for children as well. I would recommend this experience.

Old Jail was great. Bucky and Jasper did a fantastic job. We then did the ghost tour and loved it. We had Jeremy aka Jasper in the morning. He was amazing. Need to raise his wanted money because we had that good.

Our tour guide was great. She was amusing, and very informative. She gave us a lot of information about things that happened in the 1800’s, how the jail was moved to that location. Ladies couldn’t not wear dresses above their knees, and would be punished in a cage.

I enjoyed the historical part. Also thebuilding itself was very unique... for a jail ! However I wish we were given a little more time to get photos outside and in the lower part of the building. We were a very small group.

The tour guide provided information about 2 main people, the sheriff who ran the jail and 1 inmate that was executed there. We were expecting to learn more about the history of the jail. Many important details about leasing convicts, the huge number of Black inmates executed for minor crimes and the reasons for its closure were not mentioned.
