After a long, winding drive to the middle of nowhere, the jail is clean and well-kept, but theres really nothing else to see or do. There is a note to go to the post office to see artifacts, but it was closed on a Saturday. We went to eat across the street at Chef Troy’s, but it was blah, too.

Interesting construction of this old jail. I enjoyed seeing Eagle Scout projects at this location. Free, but left a donation.

Cute little log jail from days gone by. Clean and well-kept. Can eat lunch at Chef Troy's after you visit the jail.

If You Read Everything it will be much more interesting. Where you sign in it says make sure you go to the post office to see artifacts from the original jail. Well we were there Saturday afternoon so the PO was closed but what we got to see inside there was very cool. I love history. Our kids enjoyed reading the history lesson. Nice short stop.

I'm sorry but with all due respect there's nothing here noteworthy of seeing folks, honestly, but there's a pretty good down-home "gourmet" place to eat across the road, so make your trip a "HUNGRY" one and perhaps one could briefly "walk-off" their dessert, lol at the jail for a few minutes...
