This jail, one of the best-preserved in the state, dates back to 1871. Allegedly this building was the Russell County Jail from 1871-1876. One of the most well-designed jails of its time, it is a concrete square structure with one entry door that opens into a “main room” with two cells. Shackles hang beside each door and two stoves are inside although it is unclear if either are original to the structure.
