Almena Jail

Almena Jail

City/Town:
Location Class:
Built: N/A | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Randy Shearer

The Almena jail stands as a testament to our history when outlaws roamed the Midwest. Most of these concrete calabooses were built during the 1900-1915 era when the pour in place method became popular. It has four small iron-barred windows, one on each side. The only entrance is on the left of the front face of the building. Inside is a single steel cage cell that could hold a single prisoner “comfortably” and two if needed.
