Rotary Jail Museum

About Rotary Jail Museum

The Rotary Jail Museum, built in 1882, was the first of nine rotating jails constructed in the U.S. and is currently the only rotary jail in operating condition. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Historic American Engineering Record. The attached sheriff's residence houses a permanent collection and temporary exhibits of local art. Check the Rotary Jail Museum's website for extended summer hours.
