Though small and rough-looking, this jail is one of the more picturesque in the state. The jailhouse proper has poured-in-place concrete walls topped by a gable roof. A door with a plain wood frame, centered below the gable peak, leads inside. Abutting the door is a woodframe shed addition, its roof continuing the line of the gable. The jail is famous in Nevada history for having housed the three men arrested for the last horse-drawn stage robbery in the United States, which occurred outside Jarbidge in 1916.
