The Mahaska City Jail is peculiar in design, having a square structure that looks to be wrapped in a material made to look like brick. The cell would have been a fancy cell for the small town.
The only news story we could find involving the jail was October 15, 1915, when the Mahaska Leader posted: Any person or persons in Mahaska or vicinity between the age of 6 and 60 that does not walk, ride, or drive in the Farmers Institute parade on October 22 will be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine of 10 cents and imprisonment in the city jail for 20 minutes.
