Aurora Jail

City/Town:
Location Class:
Built: 1889 | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Don Dean

The Aurora Jail was constructed in 1889 two blocks South from the location it currently sits at. It is constructed of stones rather than concrete like most other tiny jails. At some point the jail was deconstructed and moved to its current location and carefully put back together, perfectly preserving it.
