Sandy Nicolette was our guide for this, and it was quite interesting. The Old Jail museum is right above this. The lady there is quite informative. Made it a great experience for our group.

This is a sweet little exhibit in the old jail. It is definitely worth a short stop when sightseeing in this beautiful area.

Another little gem in the heart of Hayesville. It is adjacent to the town museum which is in a one hundred year old jail. Another free attraction in Hayesville.

Informative and worth the ride to check out. Take a walk along the Quannassee path down to Spikebuck Mound.
