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.

Very interesting to us. I don’t think my little little kids enjoyed it as much but it would be interesting I would say for anyone seven or eight years old and up. Jake, the tour guide was very animated and interesting though.

Amusing jail tour

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.

The tour was quite an enlightening experience. Very historic and very educational as well. I never knew inmates were treated in such a harsh way.
