Goff Jail

Location Class:
Built: N/A | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Chasity Dean Uhl

The Goff jail is unusual in its construction and doesn’t look like most other cage cells documented. It is meant to hold one person and was housed in the old City Hall building of Goff. At some point after its abandonment, the jail was removed from the city building. In a bid to preserve the piece of history the jail was moved to the property of Gerald and Nancy Swart. The Swarts have an amazing collection of historic items and toys at their Skeezix’s Toy Museum where the jail sits today and can be viewed by appointment only.
