Historic Sutton County Jail

About

From 1891 to 1980, this native limestone building housed murderers, gang members, thieves, criminals of all kinds and illegal immigrants awaiting deportation. For a while, it was a makeshift hospital. It is in almost exactly the same condition as in 1891. You can view The Jail and the Sutton County Veterans Exhibit Inside on our Guided Downtown Tour.
