  • Way too much fun! Loved hearing about the sheriffs who had their families in the jail along with prisoners such as Jesse James.
  • This isn't a big attraction, by any means, but there is an awful lot of history crammed into its small footprint! The main draw is the "Jesse James" carving in the upstairs wall, but don't miss out on a scramble through the rest of the rooms. The caretakers on hand during my visit were both friendly and knowledgable. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time and the $1 suggested entry "fee" donation.
  • Nice little museum that runs on donations. Kids really got a kick out of getting to go into cells.
  • Neat little jail was really surprised how small the cell area was but loved it all the same
  • Good small museum.
