Note: The Jail is Closed each year from November until the end of May.
The whole building is secured for the winter weather. The water is turned off & pipes drained so there is no possibility of a frozen pipes. The many window coverings and cell door have insulated covers. The winter temperature is kept at about 40° (a damp and cold temperature). To maintain the 40° tempurature the furnace runs about 4 hours a day at a cost of about $850/month.
Why don't we turn on the heat and have winter tours? It would cost us about $250/DAY to heat the Jail to a comfortable temperature to have visitors.

Tours consist of small groups. You will be seated in the Living Room to watch a 15 minute presentation. Then a guide will escort your group into the dungeon and cell block. After your guided tour, you are welcome to take time on your own in the main cell block. There are informational signboards on the walls, and you may go in any cell that is opened. Photos may be taken of everything EXCEPT the HANDPRINT. Before you leave, be sure to have a photo taken "behind the bars" which are located between the kitchen and gift shop.
