Fairview Jail

City/Town:
Location Class:
Built: 1917 | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Melissa Dawn Forrester

In 1917, Fairview had a new city jail. This came as a surprise to some residents being as the town was usually pretty quiet and somber when it came to criminal activity. A single cell cage was built probably by the E.T. Barnum Company in the early 1900s seemed to serve the city up until the 1940s at least. A newspaper article depicts two men jailed in the cell that year.
