Inside the Jail!

Great for All Ages!

Cell Block

As you enter the cellblock you will be greeted by 27 cells. See how the past prisoners lived during their time served here. Towards the back of the cell block, is a replica of the gallows where four " Molly Maguires" were hanged.

Peer into Cell #17 to see the handprint left by one of the Molly Maguires proclaiming his innocence before his hanging.

The Dungeon

Creep into our eerie dungeon!

Although it is dark there will be no surprises from us. (We cannot say the same about your friends and family.) There are 16 cells & you are more than welcome to venture into them. We also encourage you to take plenty of pictures during your stay.



Thank you for a fabulous 2023!

We are now closed & the jail is winterized.
